A00107 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A107
 
SPONSOR: Quart
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to suspension and revocation information on the driving record of a person licensed to drive a motor vehicle   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill would require the Department of Motor Vehicles to ensure that changes of status of driver licenses are promptly added to a driver's driving record and that those records be easily accessible to local law enforcement officers.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section 1. Amends the vehicle and traffic law to add a new section 510-d which requires the Department of Motor Vehicles to enter a suspension, revocation or expiration of a driver license within twenty days of receiving notice of such an event and to coordinate with local law enforcement agencies to create a mechanism for law enforcement officers to immediately access this driving record information. Section 2. Amends the vehicle and traffic law to require the commission- er of the Department of Motor Vehicles to report on the current methods that law enforcement agencies use to access driving records and recom- mend more efficient methods. Section 3. Effective Date.   JUSTIFICATION: In 2010, there were 1,119 fatal traffic crashes, 134,151 crashes that resulted in injuries and nearly 259,000 total crashes in New York. 75% of those crashes can be linked to human causes, not mechanical failures. It is essential that the state take the necessary measures to prevent chronically dangerous drivers from returning to the roads by providing law enforcement officers with the ability to quickly and easily identify drivers who have had their license suspended or revoked for previous dangerous behavior, making our roads safer.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2019-2020: A0828 referred to transportation 2017-2018: A3602 referred to transportation 2015-2016: A4792 referred to transportation 2013-2014: A2260 referred to transportation 2012: A10462 referred to transportation   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the state.   EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
