AN ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to the  surren-
  der  of  number plates of all motor vehicles which a person has regis-
  tered where such person has a suspended or revoked license arising out
  of the operation of a motor vehicle within a city having a  population
  of one million or more

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

  Section 1. The vehicle and traffic law is  amended  by  adding  a  new
section 403-c to read as follows:
  §  403-C.  SURRENDER  OF  REGISTRATION  AND  NUMBER PLATES. 1. (A) ANY
PERSON WHO HAS HAD  THEIR  LICENSE  SUSPENDED  OR  REVOKED  PURSUANT  TO
SECTION  FIVE  HUNDRED  TEN  OR  FIVE HUNDRED TEN-A OF THIS CHAPTER, FOR
CONDUCT RELATING TO THE OPERATION OF  A  MOTOR  VEHICLE  WITHIN  A  CITY
HAVING  A  POPULATION  OF  ONE  MILLION  OR MORE, SHALL SURRENDER TO THE
DEPARTMENT THE NUMBER PLATES OF ALL MOTOR VEHICLES WHICH SUCH PERSON HAS
REGISTERED PURSUANT TO THIS ARTICLE, AND SHALL HAVE  ANY  MOTOR  VEHICLE
REGISTRATIONS  WHICH  BELONG TO SUCH PERSON SUSPENDED. SUCH SURRENDER OF
NUMBER PLATES AND VEHICLE SUSPENSION  OR  SUSPENSIONS  SHALL  REMAIN  IN
EFFECT AS LONG AS THE SUSPENSION OR REVOCATION OF SUCH DRIVER'S LICENSE.
  (B) WHEN A LICENSE IS SUSPENDED OR REVOKED PURSUANT TO ANY SUBDIVISION
OF SECTION FIVE HUNDRED TEN OR FIVE HUNDRED TEN-A OF THIS CHAPTER, WHICH
REQUIRES CONVICTION OF MULTIPLE OFFENSES, INFRACTIONS OR VIOLATIONS, THE
PROVISIONS  OF  THIS SECTION SHALL ONLY APPLY IF THE FINAL SUCH OFFENSE,
INFRACTION OR VIOLATION OCCURS WITHIN A CITY HAVING A POPULATION OF  ONE
MILLION OR MORE.
  2.  ALL  MOTOR  VEHICLES REGISTERED TO SUCH PERSON SHALL NOT BE REGIS-
TERED OR REREGISTERED IN THE NAME OF SUCH PERSON, OR IN ANY  OTHER  NAME
WHERE  THE  COMMISSIONER  HAS  REASONABLE  GROUNDS  TO BELIEVE THAT SUCH
REGISTRATION OR REREGISTRATION WILL HAVE THE  EFFECT  OF  DEFEATING  THE
PURPOSES OF THIS SECTION, AND NO OTHER MOTOR VEHICLE SHALL BE REGISTERED
IN THE NAME OF SUCH PERSON DURING THE PERIOD OF SUCH SUSPENSION.
