Registration of tow trucks
Vehicle & Traffic (VAT) CHAPTER 71, TITLE 4, ARTICLE 14
§ 401-b. Registration of tow trucks. Every motor vehicle engaged in
commercial towing in this state shall be registered and identified as a
tow truck, as hereinafter provided. No motor vehicle shall be registered
as a tow truck unless it shall have a gross vehicle weight rating of at
least eighty-six hundred pounds and the application for such
registration is accompanied by proof of financial security which shall
meet the requirements of article six of this chapter. Upon payment of
the fees set forth in schedule H of subdivision seven of section four
hundred one of this article, such a motor vehicle shall be issued a
license plate identifying it as a "tow truck". It shall constitute a
class A misdemeanor to engage in commercial towing with a tow truck that
is not registered pursuant to this section.
