AN ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic law, the general municipal  law,
  the  state finance law, and the criminal procedure law, in relation to
  the adjudication of traffic infractions

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

  Section  1.  Section 155 of the vehicle and traffic law, as amended by
section 1 of part CC of chapter 58 of the laws of 2015,  is  amended  to
read as follows:
  §  155.  Traffic  infraction.  The  violation of any provision of this
chapter, except articles forty-seven and forty-eight,  or  of  any  law,
ordinance,  order,  rule  or  regulation regulating traffic which is not
declared by this chapter or other law of this state to be a  misdemeanor
or  a  felony.  A  traffic  infraction is not a crime and the punishment
imposed therefor shall not be deemed for any purpose a penal or criminal
punishment and shall not affect or impair the credibility as  a  witness
or  otherwise  of any person convicted thereof. This definition shall be
retroactive and shall  apply  to  all  acts  and  violations  heretofore
committed  where such acts and violations would, if committed subsequent
to the taking effect of this section, be included within the meaning  of
the  term  "traffic  infraction"  as  herein  defined.  Except  in those
portions of Suffolk county for which a district court  has  been  estab-
lished,  [outside of cities having a population in excess of two hundred
thousand but less than two hundred twenty thousand in which  administra-
tive  tribunals  have heretofore been established and] outside of cities
having a population in excess of one  million  in  which  administrative
tribunals have heretofore been established, courts and judicial officers
heretofore having jurisdiction over such violations shall continue to do
so and for such purpose such violations shall be deemed misdemeanors and
all  provisions  of  law  relating to misdemeanors except as provided in
