SECTION 404-V
Distinctive plates for water rescue team members
Vehicle & Traffic (VAT) CHAPTER 71, TITLE 4, ARTICLE 14
* § 404-v. Distinctive plates for water rescue team members. 1. Any
member of a water rescue team shall, upon request, be issued a license
plate bearing the emblem and words "New York State" on the top of the
license plate and "Water Rescue" on the bottom of the license plate. A
dive flag shall be included on the face of the distinctive plate.
Application for said license plate shall be filed with the commissioner
in such form and detail as the commissioner shall prescribe and shall be
verified annually by the applicant.

2. The distinctive plate authorized in subdivision one of this section
shall be issued upon proof, satisfactory to the commissioner, that the
applicant is presently an active member of a water rescue team and shall
be surrendered upon the separation from a water rescue team.

3. A distinctive plate issued pursuant to this section shall be issued
in the same manner as other number plates upon payment of the regular
registration fee prescribed by section four hundred one of this article,
provided, however, that an additional annual service charge of
twenty-five dollars shall be charged for such plate. Such annual service
charge shall be deposited to the credit of the New York state water
rescue team awareness and research fund established pursuant to section
ninety-five-f of the state finance law and shall be used for water team
rescue awareness and research projects approved by the office of parks,
recreation and historic preservation. Provided, however, that one year
after the effective date of this section funds in the amount of five
thousand dollars, or so much thereof as may be available, shall be
allocated to the department to offset costs associated with the
production of such license plates.
