 AN ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation  to  increasing

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

   Section 1. Subdivision 5-a of section 401 of the vehicle  and  traffic
 law is amended by adding a new paragraph d to read as follows:
   D. IT SHALL BE UNLAWFUL FOR ANY PERSON TO REGISTER, REREGISTER, RENEW,
 REPLACE  OR TRANSFER THE REGISTRATION, CHANGE THE NAME, ADDRESS OR OTHER
 INFORMATION OF THE REGISTERED OWNER, OR CHANGE THE REGISTRATION  CLASSI-
 FICATION  OF  ANY VEHICLE WHOSE VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION NUMBER IS ASSOCI-
 ATED WITH A VEHICLE WHOSE REGISTRATION HAS BEEN SUSPENDED, OR IS SUBJECT
 TO A PENDING REQUEST FROM A TOLLING AUTHORITY TO SUSPEND  THE  REGISTRA-
 TION, UNDER PARAGRAPH D OF SUBDIVISION THREE OF SECTION FIVE HUNDRED TEN
 OF THIS CHAPTER AND 15 NYCRR 127.14. THE COMMISSIONER OR THE COMMISSION-
 ER'S  AGENT  SHALL IMPOSE A VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION NUMBER BLOCK AND DENY
 THE REGISTRATION, REREGISTRATION, RENEWAL, REPLACEMENT  OR  TRANSFER  OF
 THE  REGISTRATION  FOR  SUCH  VEHICLE  AND VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION NUMBER
 UNTIL THE TOLLING AUTHORITY ADVISES, IN SUCH  FORM  AND  MANNER  AS  THE
 COMMISSIONER  SHALL  PRESCRIBE,  THAT  NOTICES  OF  VIOLATION  HAVE BEEN
 RESPONDED TO AND ANY UNPAID TOLLS, FEES OR OTHER CHARGES ASSOCIATED WITH
 THE VEHICLE AND THE VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION NUMBER HAVE BEEN PAID TO  THE
 TOLLING AUTHORITY. WHERE AN APPLICATION IS DENIED PURSUANT TO THIS PARA-
 GRAPH,  THE  COMMISSIONER  MAY, IN THE COMMISSIONER'S DISCRETION, DENY A
 REGISTRATION, REREGISTRATION, RENEWAL, REPLACEMENT OR  TRANSFER  OF  THE
 REGISTRATION  FOR  ANY OTHER MOTOR VEHICLE REGISTERED IN THE NAME OF THE
 APPLICANT WHERE THE COMMISSIONER HAS DETERMINED THAT  SUCH  REGISTRANT'S
 INTENT  HAS  BEEN  TO EVADE THE PURPOSES OF THIS PARAGRAPH AND WHERE THE
 COMMISSIONER HAS REASONABLE GROUNDS TO BELIEVE THAT  SUCH  REGISTRATION,
 REREGISTRATION,  RENEWAL,  REPLACEMENT  OR TRANSFER OF REGISTRATION WILL
 HAVE THE EFFECT OF DEFEATING THE PURPOSES OF THIS PARAGRAPH. SUCH  VEHI-
 CLE  IDENTIFICATION  NUMBER BLOCK AND DENIAL SHALL ONLY REMAIN IN EFFECT
 UNTIL THE TOLLING AUTHORITY ADVISES, IN SUCH  FORM  AND  MANNER  AS  THE
 
  EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                       [ ] is old law to be omitted.
