Annual review of driving record
Vehicle & Traffic (VAT) CHAPTER 71, TITLE 5, ARTICLE 19-A
§ 509-e. Annual review of driving record. Each motor carrier shall, at
least once every twelve months, review the driving record of each bus
driver it employs to determine whether that driver meets minimum
requirements for safe driving and is qualified to drive a bus pursuant
to section five hundred nine-b of this article. In reviewing a driving
record, the motor carrier must consider any evidence that the bus driver
has violated applicable provisions of the vehicle and traffic law. The
motor carrier must also consider the driver's accident record and any
evidence that the driver has violated laws governing the operation of
motor vehicles, such as speeding, reckless driving, and operating while
under the influence of alcohol or drugs, that indicate that the driver
has exhibited a disregard for the safety of the public. Such information
shall be recorded in the employer's record.
