With prom season approaching, and the deadly Schoharie County limousine crash still a recent memory, a state assemblyman has proposed a bill designed to create a limo safety database for consumers.

The bill (A.5744), sponsored by Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara, D-Rotterdam, would amend the state Transportation Law by requiring an immediate safety review of all stretch limousine companies and their vehicles. This includes a verification of all drivers licenses and records of drivers, and a mandatory inspection of the vehicle.

All vehicles that are not inspected, have failed inspections, or do not meet the most current safety standards for any other reason must be seized, disabled, and “booted” until they meet all safety standards required by law.
