Summary: In 2014, the Council enacted Local Law 50, instituting civil penalties for leaving the scene of an incident without reporting. This bill would require that the Police Department (PD) report quarterly the number of notices of violation issued in response to an incident resulting in a critical injury pursuant to that law. PD would also report annually the number of complaints for leaving the scene involving property damage, personal injury, or death, as well as the number of arrests for such an incident involving personal injury or death.

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to reporting information related to leaving the scene of an incident without reporting

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Subdivision c of section 14-153 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by local law number 5 for the year 2014, is amended to read as follows:

c. For the quarter beginning July first, two thousand fifteen and quarterly thereafter, the department shall provide a report, in writing, to the speaker of the council regarding: (1) the number of traffic-related incidents during the prior quarter that involved at least one vehicle and resulted in critical injury and where the driver of a vehicle involved in such incident left the scene of such incident without reporting, in violation of section six hundred of the vehicle and traffic law; (2) the number of such incidents the department closed during the prior quarter resulting in an arrest being made for violation of such section of the vehicle and traffic law; [and] (3) the number of such incidents the department closed during the prior quarter without an arrest being made for violation of such provision of the vehicle and traffic law; and (4) the number of notices of violation issued pursuant to section 19-191 as a result of such incidents. The data in such report shall be disaggregated by precinct and the cross streets of the incident and the department shall also publish such data on the department's website. Additionally, the department shall provide to the speaker of the council in writing a brief description of what steps were taken to investigate each such incident, noting the cross streets of the incident. For purposes of this subdivision, "critical injury" shall mean any injury determined to be critical by the emergency medical service personnel responding to any such incident.

§ 2. Section 14-153 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new subdivision d to read as follows:

d. No later than July 1, 2016, and annually thereafter by May 1, the department shall provide to the speaker of the council and post on the department’s website a report regarding: (1) the number of complaints recorded in connection with traffic-related incidents during the prior year that involved at least one vehicle and resulted in property damage, personal injury, or death and where the driver of a vehicle involved in such incident left the scene of such incident without reporting, in violation of section six hundred of the vehicle and traffic law; and (2) the number of such incidents resulting in personal injury or death that the department closed during the prior year resulting in an arrest being made for violation of such section of the vehicle and traffic law.

§ 3. This local law takes effect 180 days after it becomes law.
