Statement of Basis and Purpose of Proposed Rule


The proposed rule amends the Taxi and Limousine Commission’s For-Hire-Vehicle inspection rules to clarify when a For-Hire-Vehicle is exempt from certain inspection requirements.  Under the current rules, a vehicle with fewer than 500 miles traveled must undergo only a visual inspection and not the more stringent inspections set forth in the NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law or other applicable laws and rules. The proposed rule clarifies that this exemption from the more stringent inspections applies to vehicles of any model year that have fewer than 500 miles traveled at the time of inspection. The Commission’s authority for this rules change is found in section 2303 of the New York City Charter and section 19-503 of the New York City Administrative Code.
