A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to requiring the installation of speed humps on roadways adjacent to schools.
 
 
Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
Section 1. Subchapter 3 of chapter 1 of title 19 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 19-189 to read as follows:
§19-189 Installation of speed humps on roadways adjacent to schools.  a. Definitions. For the purposes of this section, the following terms shall be defined as follows:
1."School" shall mean any buildings, grounds, facilities, property, or portion thereof in which educational instruction is provided to at least 250 students at or below the twelfth grade level.
2. "Speed hump" shall mean any raised area in the roadway pavement surface extending transversely across the travel way that is composed of asphalt or another paving material and is installed and designed for the purpose of slowing vehicular traffic.
b. Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 19-183 and 19-185 of this chapter, the commissioner shall annually install one or more speed humps on not fewer than fifty block segments that are adjacent to a school.
c. After evaluating every school in the city for the installation of speed humps pursuant to subdivision b of this section, the commissioner may determine not to install any further speed humps and shall inform the speaker of the council in writing of such determination and the reasons therefor; provided, however, that the commissioner shall evaluate the need to install one or more speed humps on roadways adjacent to any school created after such determination.
d. The commissioner may decline to install any speed hump that is otherwise required by this section if such installation would, in the commissioner's judgment, endanger the safety of motorists or pedestrians or not be consistent with the department's guidelines regarding the installation of speed humps.
§2. This local law shall take effect on January 1, 2014.
