Int. No. 897-A

 

By Council Members Miller, Adams, Richards, Yeger, Kallos and Chin

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to the operation of commuter vans

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Paragraph 4 of subdivision a and subdivision b of section 19-504.4 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by local law number 115 for the year 1993, are amended to read as follows:

(4) Where [the number of] three or more violations of paragraph five of subdivision a of section 19-504.3 of this chapter [occurring] occur within a [twelve] six month period [is equal to the following: ninety percent of the number of commuter vans authorized to operate as part of such authorization rounded up to the next whole number, or five, whichever is greater]. Provided, however, that such authorization shall be suspended for 15 days where two violations of paragraph five of subdivision a of section 19-504.3 of this chapter occur within a six-month period after the holder of such authorization has had an opportunity for a hearing in accordance with procedures to be established by the commission.

b. Any commuter van license shall be revoked after the holder of such license has had an opportunity for a hearing in accordance with procedures to be established by the commission and after which the holder of such license is found guilty of any of the following: (1) Failure to maintain the required liability insurance three times within a period of one year; [or] (2) Operating without complying with any safety inspection requirements arising from any applicable law, rule or regulation three times within a period of one year; or (3) Two or more violations of subdivision n of section 19-506 within a period of one year.

§ 2. Section 19-506 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new subdivision n to read as follows:

n. A person who holds a commuter van license must not allow such commuter van to be operated by a driver who does not hold a commuter van driver’s license issued pursuant to section 19-505. A violation of this subdivision shall result in a civil penalty of $500 and suspension of the commuter van license until the person who holds such license submits an affirmation to the commission affirming that the vehicle which gave rise to such violation will only be operated by a driver who holds a commuter van driver’s license issued pursuant to section 19-505.

§ 3. This local law takes effect 120 days after it becomes law.
