NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A9973
 
SPONSOR: Solages
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the transportation law, in relation to the intentional removal of identification markers from commercial motor vehicles in the city of New York   PURPOSE: To provide a penalty for commercial vehicles that may intentionally remove identification makers, such as registration stickers, license plates, and VIN numbers in order to attempt to evade ticketing for underlying offenses, such as illegal parking.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1. Amends paragraph c of subdivision 2 of section 140 of the transportation law by adding a new subparagraph (sill). Section 2. Sets the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: The current penalties concerning the illegal parking of commercial vehi- cles in New York City are not a sufficient deterrent to cease the prac- tice. In certain areas of Queens, tractor-trailers lineup on entire streets for days on end causing issues with respect to public safety, quality of life and the ability of residents to find parking for their own automobiles. Furthermore, attempts to evade enforcement are preva- lent with many truck drivers removing all identifying information-such as registration stickers, license plates, and VIN numbers from their.vehicles so that tickets and towing on original violations cannot proceed. This legislation will punish the act of evasion and hopefully return the streets within our neighborhoods and communities to normalcy.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2021-22: A7147; referred to transportation. 2019-20: A7758; referred to transportation.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
