AN  ACT  to  amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to requiring
  certain vehicles to be equipped with side under-ride guards

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Section  375 of the vehicle and traffic law is amended by
adding a new subdivision 10-f to read as follows:
  10-F. EVERY TRUCK, TRACTOR, AND TRACTOR-TRAILER OR SEMITRAILER  COMBI-
NATION  REGISTERED IN THIS STATE HAVING A GROSS VEHICLE WEIGHT RATING OF
TWENTY-SIX THOUSAND POUNDS OR MORE, AND A CONVENTIONAL CAB CONFIGURATION
IN WHICH MORE THAN HALF OF THE ENGINE LENGTH IS FORWARD OF THE  FOREMOST
POINT  OF  THE  WINDSHIELD  BASE  AND  THE  STEERING WHEEL HUB IS IN THE
FORWARD QUARTER OF THE VEHICLE LENGTH, WHENEVER OPERATED WITHIN  A  CITY
HAVING  A POPULATION OF ONE MILLION OR MORE ON HIGHWAYS OTHER THAN CONT-
ROLLED-ACCESS HIGHWAYS, SHALL BE EQUIPPED WITH  SIDE  UNDER-RIDE  GUARDS
AFFIXED  TO THE SIDES OF SUCH VEHICLES IN A MANNER CONSISTENT WITH RULES
AND REGULATIONS THAT  SHALL  BE  PROMULGATED  BY  THE  COMMISSIONER,  IN
CONSULTATION WITH THE COMMISSIONER OF TRANSPORTATION.
  S  2.  This  act shall be deemed repealed if any federal agency or any
court of competent jurisdiction finally determines that this  act  would
render New York state ineligible for the receipt of federal funds.
  S  3.  Severability.  If any clause, sentence, subdivision, paragraph,
section or part of this act be adjudged by any court of competent juris-
diction to be invalid, such judgment shall not affect, impair or invali-
date the remainder thereof, but shall be confined in  its  operation  to
the  clause,  sentence,  subdivision, paragraph, section or part thereof
directly involved in the controversy in which such judgment  shall  have
been rendered.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
