Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
Section 1. The title and subdivisions a and b of section 19-128 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by local law number 49 for the year 2007, are amended to read as follows:
§ 19-128. Damaged or missing signs and signals.  a.  For  the purposes of this section, the [phrase] following terms shall be defined as follows:
           (i) "priority regulatory sign" shall mean a stop sign, yield sign, do not enter sign, or one way sign[.];
           (ii) "traffic control signal" shall have the same meaning as set forth in section one hundred fifty-four of the vehicle and traffic law or any successor provision thereto.
b. The department shall maintain a log of notices regarding priority regulatory signs and traffic control signals that are missing or damaged to the extent that any such sign or signal is not operational, visible or legible to a motorist who must obey or rely upon such sign or signal.  Such  log  shall  include the date and time such notice was received and the date and time on which such priority regulatory sign [or one way  sign]  or traffic control signal was  repaired  or  replaced,  or  the  date  on  which  a determination was made that repair or replacement was not warranted and the reason for such determination.
§ 2.  Section 19-128 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding two new subdivisions e and f to read as follows:
e. Within twenty-four hours of receiving notice that a traffic control signal is missing or damaged to the extent that such signal is not operational or visible to a motorist who must obey or rely upon such signal the department shall:
(i) repair or replace such signal,
(ii)implement alternative measures to control traffic if such repair or replacement will take greater than twenty-four hours, or
(iii) make a determination that repair or replacement is not warranted.
f. This section shall not apply with regard to traffic control signals at a location where multiple traffic control signals are present and facing the same direction in the same intersection and one or more of such signals remains operational.
§ 3. This local law shall take effect ninety days after its enactment into law.
