NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A5407B
 
SPONSOR: McDonough
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to creating distinctive plates for the New York city fire riders motorcycle club   PURPOSE: To allow for distinctive plates to be issued for members of the New York City Fire Riders Motor Cycle Club.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill amends the vehicle and traffic law by adding a new section 404-ff to allow the Commissioner of the Department of Motor Vehicles to issue distinctive plates to the New York City Fire Riders Motor Cycle Club. A person requesting such plates must be a resident of New York State and an active or retired member of the club. The plates shall be issued upon payment of the regular registration fee and an additional annual service charge of $25 shall be charged for each plate.   JUSTIFICATION: The New York City Fire Riders Motor Cycle Club is a fraternal Fire Department of New York City organization with over 300 members. The New York City Fire Riders Motorcycle Club was established in January of 1985. The club was created to unite firefighters and promote safe motor- cycling. The original group consisted of 16 members and there is now a chapter in Nassau County. The New York City Fire Riders Motorcycle Club is also affiliated with the Red Knights International Motorcycle Club and the Wind & Fire Motorcycle Club. These affiliations present the club with many opportunities to travel into Canada to fellowship within the brotherhood of firefighters. This legislation would allow for the issu- ance of a distinctive license plate for active and retired firefighters belonging to the New York City Fire Riders Motor Cycle Club. These club members would like to display their pride as present and former New York City Firefighters who are also proud motorcycle owners. This bill shows New York State's appreciation toward these particular individuals who bravely serve or have bravely served the residents of the City of New York.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
