In New York, the operators of passenger vehicles such as buses and limousines must comply with state specific registration requirements. These vehicles often have several passengers who do not have access to seatbelts, are not wearing a seatbelt, and are without the protection of an airbag, making any collision particularly dangerous. The weight and size of these vehicles makes any collision extremely serious. Strict registration requirements including inspections ensure that the vehicle is road worthy and safe. There are also special licensing requirements for drivers so that both the passengers inside the vehicles and others on the roadways are safe and protected from harm. A driver or company that fails to abide by these requirements can be held liable if an accident and injuries occur.
