State lawmakers plan to host a public hearing addressing limousine safety after new regulations were included in the approved state budget, measures the families involved in the 2015 crash in Cutchogue say fall short of expectations.

While the new regulations include a ban on U-turns for larger vehicles, a new $85 state inspection fee, tougher penalties for illegal limo operators, and authority for police to remove license plates from stretch limousines that fail inspections, the families are disappointed drivers will not be required to have a commercial driver’s license and that adults will not be required to wear seat belts in limousines.
