Section 2133 Forged insurance identification cards

Insurance (ISC)

Any insurance company, insurance agent, insurance broker or other person who or which, personally or by the action of an employee or agent, possesses, transfers or uses a forged insurance identification card for a motor vehicle, having knowledge, personally or through such employee or agent, of the fact that such insurance identification card, when issued, did not actually represent an owner's policy of liability insurance or a financial security bond issued by an insurance company licensed to do business in this state covering the motor vehicle identified on such card, shall be liable for payment to the people of this state of a civil penalty in a sum not exceeding one thousand dollars for the first such violation and a sum not exceeding five thousand dollars for each subsequent violation. For the purposes of this section the term "forged insurance identification card" means a written insurance identification card which has been falsely made, completed or altered, and the term "falsely made, completed or altered" shall have the same meaning as set forth in section 170.00 of the penal law.
