Gov. Cuomo proposes no U-turns for limos in state budget
Gov. Andrew Cuomo is proposing legislation in the state budget that would ban limos from making U-turns on any road in the state.
The push comes after the limo crash in Cutchogue that killed four young women and injured four others in 2015.
The stretch limo made a U-turn at Depot Lane and County Road 48. It was then virtually cut in half after being struck by a pickup truck.
A report released by the DA in 2016 recommended making U-turns illegal for limos anywhere in the state, requiring stricter licensing and training for limo drivers similar to that of bus drivers, and changing the legal definition of criminal negligence to apply to professional drivers who cause fatalities in crashes where the professional driver is at fault.
