BILL NUMBER:A4099

TITLE OF BILL:  An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in
relation to requiring verbal warnings to be issued prior to the
issuance of a parking violation

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

The purpose of this bill is to require a verbal warning to any
occupied vehicle before a parking control or enforcement agency in the
State of New York can issue a parking violation summons.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

This bill will add a new Section 1202-a to the vehicle and traffic law
of the State of New York to require a verbal warning to the occupant
of a vehicle prior to the issuance of a parking violation

JUSTIFICATION:

Before issuing a parking violation to an occupied vehicle, a traffic
agent or other law enforcement authority should be required to
verbally direct the suspected vehicle to move immediately or they will
be given a parking violation summons. Recent examples illustrate the
need for such a common sense approach to traffic enforcement,
including where a motorist was given a "no parking" ticket while
sitting in his car after pulling to the curb to take a phone call, and
where a motorist was given a ticket for "double parking" while waiting
for another car to pull out of a parking space. In each of these
instances, the Goal of traffic enforcement would be better and more
fairly served by simply requiring traffic enforcement agents to issue
a verbal directive to a vehicle's occupants Prior to writing a
summons.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

2013/14 - A.4213
2012 - A.5435

FISCAL IMPACT:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect on the sixtieth day after it shall become
law.
