New York should ban stretch limousines and take a series of other regulatory steps after a horrific crash in October that killed 20 people in upstate New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday.
Cuomo said he will include a series of safety reforms —including requiring seat belts to be worn in limos — in his state budget proposal that would hopefully prevent another deadly crash.
Twenty people were killed Oct. 6 on a rural road in Schoharie outside Albany when the converted 2001 Ford Excursion crashed after the state repeatedly tried to take the aging vehicle with a history of mechanical problems off the road.
It also raised new questions about whether seat belts should be required to be worn in limos.
And Cuomo's plan would, in fact, eliminate the exception to seatbelt requirements for limousines, buses, taxis, liveries, and school buses.

How will those wall street executives get from the coc aine parlor back to their apartment with their harem of escorts if this passes?

Limos represent a different in ‘class’. They denote a separation between ‘rich’ and ‘poor’.
If libs had their way all limos would be destroyed and their owners put in prison camps.
