A09522 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A9522A
 
SPONSOR: Woerner
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to slow moving vehicles   PURPOSE: To increase the speed at which a slow moving vehicle, with an attached slow-moving vehicle emblem, and an additional speed identification symbol, may travel on roadways, to help strengthen farm equipment safe- ty.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1: Section 375 of Vehicle and Traffic Law is amended to direct the commissioner to adopt standards and specification for design, creation and use, in conformance with American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers standard which meets the criteria of the Ameri- can National Standards Institute / American Society for Testing and Materials S584 for the size, design and mounting of a speed identifica- tion symbol. A speed identification symbol shall indicate the maximum speed, in miles per hour at which the unit of farm machinery, implement of husbandry and other machinery including road construction and mainte- nance machinery to which it is mounted is designed by its manufacturer to operate Section 2: Establishes the effective date   JUSTIFICATION: As agricultural technologies continue to improve, it is important to keep regulations updated to reflect those changes. Current state law requires the slow moving emblem to be displayed on agricultural equip- ment designed to operate at 25 miles per hour or less when traveling on public highways. However, farm tractors and other equipment are being designed to travel at speeds above 25 miles per hour and some are even designed to travel at speeds to greater than 35 miles per hour. The State of Iowa has increased the speed at which equipment may be operated with a SMV emblem to 35 miles per hour to accommodate agricultural equipment traveling at speeds greater than 25 miles per hour. The legislation would still require that the slow moving vehicle emblem be displayed on all farm machinery, whether self-propelled or towed, but would increase the speed at which the machinery could travel from 25 mph to 35 mph. The slow-moving vehicle emblem alerts other drivers that the vehicle is travelling at a reduced speed and to use caution when driving behind the machinery. One of the major reasons why accidents occur with farm equipment is that nonfarm drivers fail to adequately react and respond when driving around farm equipment. For example, non-farm driv- ers often do not anticipate how slow farm equipment travels and there- fore do not start to slow their vehicle as they approach the implements. Therefore, it is important to notify other drivers of the reduced speed.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: This is a new bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day after it shall have become a law. Effective immediately, the addition, amendment and/or repeal of any rule or regulation necessary for the implementation of this act on its effective date are authorized to be made and completed on or before such effective date.

        AN  ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to slow moving
          vehicles

          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
 
     1    Section  1.  Subdivision  36 of section 375 of the vehicle and traffic

     4  follows:
     5    36. (a) (i) The slow-moving vehicle emblem as developed by the  Ameri-
     6  can Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers shall be recognized
     7  as  the  official  state slow moving vehicle emblem. The commissioner of
     8  motor vehicles shall adopt  standards  and  specifications  for  design,
     9  creation and use, in conformance with those recommendations of the Amer-
    10  ican  Society  of  Agricultural  and  Biological Engineers for the size,
    11  design and mounting of said slow-moving vehicle emblem.
    12    (ii) The commissioner shall adopt  standards  and  specifications  for
    13  design,  creation  and use, in conformance with those recommendations of
    14  the American Society of Agricultural and Biological  Engineers  standard

    16  Institute/American Society for Testing and Materials S584 for the  size,
    17  design  and mounting of a speed identification symbol. A speed identifi-
    18  cation symbol shall indicate the maximum speed  in  miles  per  hour  at
    19  which  the  unit  of  farm  machinery,  implement of husbandry and other
    20  machinery including road construction and maintenance machinery to which

    13  way at a speed greater than twenty-five miles per  hour  but  less  than
    14  forty miles per hour and is towing, pulling, or otherwise drawing a unit
    15  of  farm machinery, the unit of farm machinery shall display a slow-mov-
    16  ing vehicle emblem and a speed identification symbol that is the same as
    17  the speed identification symbol that is displayed  on  the  agricultural
    18  tractor.
