Int 0322-2018 *Ydanis A. Rodriguez  Street design checklist.IntroductionThis bill would require the Department of Transportation (“DOT”) to develop a standard checklist of safety-enhancing street design elements that the department must consider for all major transportation projects. DOT would be required to post such standard checklist on its website, and could amend the standard checklist by rule only to promote vehicular, pedestrian and bicycle safety. For each major transportation project, DOT would be required to complete a checklist stating which street design elements have been applied, and if an element has not been applied, the reason for not applying such element. The bill would require that DOT post each completed checklist on the department’s website prior to the implementation of the applicable project.Hearing Held by Committee  Action details Not available

Int 0971-2018 *Brad S. Lander  Dangerous drivingIntroductionCurrently, the only consequence for traffic violations documented by red light cameras or speed cameras is a $50 fine for each violation, regardless of the number of such violations. In order to deter dangerous driving, this bill provides that, after a motor vehicle has been documented for traffic violations by red light camera or speed camera at least five times within a 12-month period, the owner will be required to complete a traffic safety program and pay the fees for such program. If the owner fails to complete a traffic safety program, the vehicle will be subject to impoundment and will be released when the owner completes the traffic safety program and pays the program and impoundment fees.Hearing Held by Committee  Action details Not available
