SECTION 1809-B
Mandatory surcharge required for certain violations relating to handicapped parking spaces
Vehicle & Traffic (VAT) CHAPTER 71, TITLE 9, ARTICLE 45
§ 1809-b. Mandatory surcharge required for certain violations relating
to handicapped parking spaces. 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of
law, whenever proceedings in an administrative tribunal or a court
result in a finding of liability, or conviction for a violation of
section twelve hundred three-a, twelve hundred three-b or twelve hundred
three-c of this chapter or any other statute, local law, ordinance or
rule involving the parking, stopping or standing of motor vehicles
registered pursuant to section four hundred four-a of this chapter or
those possessing a special vehicle identification parking permit issued
in accordance with section one thousand two hundred three-a of this
chapter, there shall be levied a mandatory surcharge in addition to any
other sentence, fine or penalty otherwise permitted or required, in the
amount of thirty dollars. Such surcharge shall not be deemed a monetary
penalty for the purposes of section two hundred thirty-seven of this
chapter or section 19-203 of the administrative code of the city of New
York.

2. The mandatory surcharge provided for in subdivision one of this
section shall be paid to the clerk of the court or administrative
tribunal that made the determination of liability. Within the first ten
days of the month next succeeding the collection of such surcharge, the
collecting authority shall pay fifteen dollars of such surcharge to the
chief fiscal officer of the county in which such violation occurred or
of the city of New York, for deposit to the credit of the handicapped
parking education fund of such county or city established pursuant to
section twelve hundred three-g of this chapter which shall be used by
such county or city solely for a handicapped parking education program
pursuant to such section. The remaining amount of the surcharge shall be
paid to the chief fiscal officer of the municipality from which it
originated and used by such municipality for its local criminal justice
programs and purposes; provided, however, that such municipality shall
use ten percent of such funds for developing and implementing a
disability awareness program for local law enforcement agencies for the
purpose of training local law enforcement personnel to recognize and
appropriately respond to persons with disabilities with whom such
personnel come into contact in the course of their duties.
