NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A4099
 
SPONSOR: DenDekker (MS)
  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 motor- ist was given a "no parking" ticket while sitting in his car after pull- ing 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.
