A03906 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A3906
 
SPONSOR: Colton (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to vehicle inspection renewal notification   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill would amend section 304 of vehicle and traffic law by adding a new subdivision where the Department of Motor Vehicles shall notify individuals via postal mail that their vehicle inspection is subject to expiration before such expiration.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section (1) Section 304 of the vehicle and traffic law is amended by adding a new subdivision (d) to read as follows: (d) The department of motor vehicles shall notify individuals via postal mail that their vehicle inspection is subject to expiration before such expiration. Every owner of a motor vehicle which shall be operated or driven upon the public highways of this state, except as otherwise expressly provided, shall be contacted by mail or otherwise. Section (2) This act shall take effect on the first of January next succeeding the, date on which it shall have become a law   JUSTIFICATION: This bill seeks to promote public safety by reminding a driver that their New York State Vehicle Inspection is close to expiration. Currently there is not a means to notify of impending inspection expira- tion; therefore it is common that many people miss their inspection renewal date. A reminder would give a warning notice to the motorist that it is time to take their vehicle in for the required yearly inspection. This would reduce the number of un-inspected vehicles with possible malfunctioning equipment on public streets.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2014: A.9100/Transportation   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the first of January next succeeding the date on which it shall have become a law.
