Section Description
517 Interstate compact guaranteeing appearance.
  S 517. Interstate compact guaranteeing appearance. a. The commissioner
  may  execute a reciprocal compact or agreement not inconsistent with the
  provisions of this chapter with the motor vehicle administrator or other
  authorized official of another state  concerning  the  appearance  of  a
  person licensed in one state to answer a summons or an appearance ticket
  for  a moving traffic violation issued by the other state.  Such compact
  shall provide that if a person licensed by  either  state  is  issued  a
  summons  or an appearance ticket by the other state for a moving traffic
  violation covered by the compact or agreement, he shall not be  detained
  or  required  to  furnish  bail  or  collateral, and that if he fails to
  appear in response to such summons or appearance ticket, his license may
  be suspended by the state that issued the license until  he  submits  to
  the  jurisdiction  of the court or administrative tribunal in which such
  summons or appearance ticket is returnable.   Such  compact  shall  also
  provide  such  terms  and  procedures  as  are  necessary  and proper to
  facilitate its administration.
    b. Such interstate compacts may also provide that if a registration or
  renewal  of  a  motor  vehicle  would  be  denied  pursuant  to   either
  subdivision  five-a  of  section  four  hundred one of this chapter, for
  failing to answer  summonses  or  other  processes  issued  for  parking
  infractions,  or  subdivision  four of section one hundred forty-five of
  the transportation law, with respect to the transportation of  household
  goods,  returnable  in  any  court  or an administrative tribunal of the
  department of transportation or for failing to comply with the rules and
  regulations of any administrative tribunal of  appropriate  jurisdiction
  following entry of a final determination with respect to such summons or
  process,  the  state  issuing the registration or renewal shall likewise
  deny the registration or renewal, until such applicant  submits  to  the
  jurisdiction  of  the  court  or  administrative  tribunal in which such
  summonses or other processes are returnable.
    c. The word "state" when used in this section shall  mean  any  state,
  territory  or  possession of the United States, the District of Columbia
  or any province of the Dominion of Canada.
