State Assemblyman drafting legislation for limo database

Local News

NEW YORK STATE (WSYR-TV) — Students and schools are getting ready for prom, but as they look ahead to the excitement, there are concerns about safety after a limousine crash in Schoharie County last October.

Some parents say they are hesitant to allow their kids to rent limos.

An Albany-area Assemblyman has drafted legislation for a limo database to make it easier for parents and students to see the DMV records of the drivers and their vehicles.

“There are people concerned about this, schools are concerned about this. Students are concerned about this. Some people’s minds don’t feel safe getting into limos anymore,” Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara said.

On Thursday, families who lost loved ones in the Schoharie crash testified in front of a State Senate committee in Albany, as did the CEO of a transportation company.
