    26  equal to those tolls established from time to  time  by  the  Triborough
    27  bridge  and tunnel authority at the locations specified in paragraph (c)

    29  of this legislation, tolls shall be reduced at those locations specified
    30  in  paragraph  (c) of subdivision one of this section by 9.75 percent at
    31  the time the Move New York toll swap is implemented.  Such tolls and all
    32  other tolls at the  facilities  of  the  Triborough  bridge  and  tunnel
    33  authority  may thereafter be adjusted from time to time as determined by
    34  the Triborough bridge  and  tunnel  authority,  subject  to  legislative
    35  approval,  and  in  accordance  with  those procedures applicable to the
    36  setting of tolls for authority facilities generally.
    37    2-a.  Notwithstanding  the  provisions  of  subdivision  two  of  this
    38  section,  the  toll  charged for westbound vehicles utilizing the north-

    41    3.  Tolls collected at points of entry specified in paragraphs (a) and
    42  (b) of subdivision one of this section shall, excepting revenue  derived
    43  from  tolls  on  facilities operated by the Triborough bridge and tunnel
    44  authority, be transferred into the Move New York  mobility  fund  estab-
    45  lished  by  section  eighty-five  of the state finance law.  All revenue
    46  collected from the tolls at points of entry specified in  paragraph  (c)
    47  of  subdivision  one  of this section shall continue to be collected and
    48  retained by the Triborough bridge and tunnel authority.
    49    4. The tolls at the points of entry specified in  paragraphs  (a)  and
    50  (b) of subdivision one of this section shall be imposed as of the opera-
    51  tion date, and maintained thereafter, only if, simultaneously, the then-
    52  prevailing  tolls  at the following locations are lowered and maintained
    53  thereafter by the Triborough bridge and tunnel authority  in  accordance
    54  with the provisions of subdivision five of this section:

     6    5. The price of the tolls at the point of entry specified by:
     7    (a) Paragraph (a) of subdivision four of this section shall be uniform
     8  and  not  more  than  twenty-eight  percent of the electronic direct-pay
     9  rate, or fifty-six percent of the cost of  the  pay-by-mail  rate,  that
    10  would be charged to a vehicle at the tolls at the points of entry speci-
    11  fied in paragraphs (a), (b) and (c) of subdivision one of this section;
    12    (b)  Paragraphs  (b),  (c),  (d)  and  (g) of subdivision four of this
    13  section shall be uniform and not more than  fifty-five  percent  of  the

    15  mail rate, that would be charged to a vehicle at the tolls at the points
    16  of  entry specified in paragraphs (a), (b) and (c) of subdivision one of
    17  this section; and
    18    (c) Paragraphs (e) and (f) of subdivision four of this  section  shall

    21  would be charged to a vehicle at the tolls at the points of entry speci-
    22  fied in paragraphs (a), (b) and (c) of subdivision one of this section.
    23    (d) For those bridges where a governor-approved resident toll discount
    24  is currently in effect, such discount shall be made permanent,  and  any
    25  resident  rate  for  those  same crossings shall be fifty percent of the
    26  standard toll under this plan for those vehicles equipped with electron-
    27  ic, onsite, direct payment technology.
    28    6. In the event that the Triborough bridge and tunnel authority  fails
    29  to  establish  and  maintain  tolls at the facilities specified in para-
    30  graphs (a) through (g) of subdivision four of  this  section  at  levels
    31  consistent  with  the  ratios  established  by  subdivision five of this
    32  section, then the authority to  establish  and  maintain  tolls  at  the
    33  facilities  specified  in  paragraphs  (a) and (b) of subdivision one of
    34  this section shall lapse and be of no force and effect. Vehicles  regis-
    35  tered  in  any borough that lacks subway service to the central business
    36  district which are traveling to or from the central  business  district,
    37  shall  be  limited  to  one toll per direction so long as the vehicle in
    38  question is using E-ZPass or other form of instant, onsite  payment  and
    39  that  the  second tolled facility the driver may cross is reached within
    40  three hours of  the  first  tolled  facility  in  that  direction  being
    41  crossed,  where the tolled facilities in question are those specified in
    42  paragraphs (a) and (b) of subdivision one and paragraph (g) of  subdivi-
    43  sion four of this section.
    44    7.  (a)  The city taxi and limousine commission, pursuant to an agree-
    45  ment to be entered into with the  Move  New  York  highway  and  transit
    46  authority,  but  in no case later than January first, two thousand twen-
    47  ty-two shall be authorized to impose and shall impose a surcharge on all
    48  taxis, black cars, liveries and for-hire vehicles licensed by  the  city
    49  taxi and limousine commission picking up or discharging passengers with-
    50  in  the  hail  exclusionary  zone  as  defined by the taxi and limousine
    51  commission.
    52    (b) Such charge shall be determined as follows: twelve cents per  two-
    53  tenths  of  one  mile  traveled at a speed of six miles per hour or more
    54  plus twenty cents per two-tenths of one mile traveled at a speed of less
    55  than six miles per hour, within the hail exclusionary zone as defined by
    56  the taxi and limousine commission. The charges specified in this  subdi-

        S. 1528                             5
     1  vision  shall  vary  according  to subdivision ten of this section. Such
     2  charges may be adjusted upward from time to time by the  city  taxi  and
     3  limousine commission.
     4    (c)  All charges under this subdivision shall be collected by the taxi
     5  and limousine commission and remitted to the Move New York  highway  and
     6  transit authority on a quarterly basis.
     7    (d)  Notwithstanding any contrary provision of law, any for hire vehi-
     8  cle or taxi subject to the surcharge specified by this subdivision shall
     9  be exempt from the tolls specified in paragraphs (a),  (b)  and  (c)  of
    10  subdivision one of this section.
    11    8.  (a)  A commercial vehicle, as defined by the New York city traffic
    12  rules, equipped with an operational commercial E-ZPass,  shall  only  be
    13  charged  a  single round trip toll per day notwithstanding the number of
    14  times such vehicle may cross the perimeter of the tolls  established  by
    15  this section.
    16    (b)  All  vehicles and vehicle types or classes shall pay the new toll
    17  crossings with the exception of emergency vehicles  and  New  York  city
    18  government  vehicles  as  may  be  provided  pursuant to the rule making
    19  authority of the Move New York highway and transit authority board.
    20    9. It shall be a violation of this section for the owner of any  vehi-
    21  cle  subject  to a toll charge pursuant to this article or any surcharge
    22  pursuant to subdivision seven of this section to fail to pay  such  toll
    23  charge  or  surcharge to the department within thirty days after the end
    24  of a day in which the vehicle has incurred such toll charge or surcharge
    25  pursuant to this section or within fifteen  days  of  receiving  written
    26  notice, whichever is later.
    27    10.  The  department  by  agreement with the Move New York highway and
    28  transit authority and the Triborough  bridge  and  tunnel  authority  is
    29  hereby  authorized  to  establish  a demand-based pricing scheme whereby
    30  tolls shall be higher during times of heavy  traffic  volume  and  lower
    31  during  times  of lighter traffic volume, provided, however, that in all
    32  cases revenue raised from the fees established  by  this  section  shall
    33  meet  the  revenue  that  would have been raised if rates did not change
    34  throughout the day, as provided for in this section of this article.
    35    Nothing in this section is intended nor shall it be construed to limit
    36  or modify the authority and power of the Triborough  bridge  and  tunnel
    37  authority to establish tolls at its own facilities.
    38    §  1704.  Violations  and  enforcement.   1. Notwithstanding any other
    39  provision of law, violations of this article shall be adjudicated pursu-
    40  ant to this section. The owner of a vehicle shall be liable for a penal-
    41  ty imposed pursuant to this section if such vehicle was used or operated
    42  with the permission of the owner, expressed or implied, in violation  of
    43  this  article,  and  such violation is evidenced by information obtained
    44  from a vehicle-monitoring system or other credible evidence.
    45    2. A certificate, sworn to or affirmed by  a  technician  employed  or
    46  contracted  by  the  city,  or  a facsimile or electronic image thereof,
    47  based  upon  inspection  of  photographs,  microphotographs,  videotape,
    48  digital record, digital recording or other recorded images produced by a
    49  vehicle-monitoring  system  shall  be  prima facie evidence of the facts
    50  contained therein. Any photographs, microphotographs, videotape, digital
    51  recording, digital record, or other recorded images  evidencing  such  a
    52  violation shall be available for inspection in any proceeding to adjudi-
    53  cate the liability for such violation pursuant to this section.
    54    3.  Notwithstanding  any other provision of law, an owner liable for a
    55  violation of this article shall be  liable  for  monetary  penalties  in
    56  accordance with the following initial schedule:

        S. 1528                             6
     1       (a) for failure to respond to written
     2           notice within thirty days ....................... Fifty dollars
     3       (b) for failure to respond to written
     4           notice within sixty days .................. One hundred dollars
     5       (c) for failure to respond to written
     6           notice within ninety or more days ... One hundred fifty dollars
     7    The department of finance of the city or the parking violations bureau
     8  shall adjudicate liability imposed by this section.
     9    4.  An  imposition  of liability pursuant to this section shall not be
    10  deemed a conviction as an operator and shall not be  made  part  of  the
    11  operating  record  of the person upon whom such liability is imposed nor
    12  shall it be used for insurance purposes in the provision of motor  vehi-
    13  cle insurance coverage.
    14    5.  A  notice  of  liability shall be sent by first class mail to each
    15  person alleged to be liable as an owner for a violation of this article.
    16  Personal service on the owner shall not be required. A manual  or  auto-
    17  matic  record  of  mailing  prepared  in the ordinary course of business
    18  shall be prima facie evidence of the facts contained therein. The notice
    19  of liability shall contain the following information:
    20    (a) the name and address of the person alleged  to  be  liable  as  an
    21  owner for a violation of this article;
    22    (b) the registration number of the vehicle involved in such violation;
    23    (c)  the  date,  time,  and location or locations where such violation
    24  took place;
    25    (d) the identification number  of  the  vehicle-monitoring  system  or
    26  other document locator number;
    27    (e)  information advising the person charged of the manner and time in
    28  which he or she may contest the liability alleged in the notice; and
    29    (f) a warning to advise the person charged that failure to contest  in
    30  the  manner and time provided shall be deemed an admission of liability,
    31  may subject the person to additional penalties, and that a default judg-
    32  ment may be issued thereon.
    33    6. If the evidence of the violation is derived from an official source
    34  other than the vehicle-monitoring system, such as from  an  employee  of
    35  the  police  department of the city, the notice shall contain sufficient
    36  information detailing the name  and  title  of  the  city  employee  who
    37  observed  the  violation  in  addition  to  the information described in
    38  subdivision five of this section.
    39    7. If an owner receives a notice of liability pursuant to this section
    40  for any time period during which the vehicle was reported to the  police
    41  department  as  having  been  stolen,  it shall be a valid defense to an
    42  allegation of liability for a violation of this article that the vehicle
    43  had been reported to  the  police  as  stolen  prior  to  the  time  the
    44  violation occurred and had not been recovered by such time. For purposes
    45  of asserting the defense provided by this subdivision it shall be suffi-
    46  cient  that  a certified copy of the police report on the stolen vehicle

    50  sion.  Such  denial shall only remain in effect as long as the summonses
    51  remain unanswered, or in the case of  an  administrative  tribunal,  the
