New Laws In Effect for January in New York State

Real Estate Agent with Howard Hanna Real Estate Services 40CA1147997

Just in case you did not get the memo replaceable battery operated smoke detector are illegal in New York State. They either have to be hard wired or have a sealed ten year battery.

There goes the post for reminders of replacing the battery!

The new moveover law goes in effect on the seventeenth requiring motorist to  substantially slow down and move over for any emergency vehicles, tow trucks, rubbish collector's and just about anything with a flashing light.

Oh and unless you have a medical excuse from a Doctor you may mot add tint to the front windows of your vehicle.

An update to the smoke detectors is the law will now not go into effevt until 4/1/2017

Good morning Raymond E. Camp ,

Good to know! Interesting smoke dectector's with batteries are illegal. New homes here come with them hardwired but older homes still may have the battery operated..not against the law but should upgrade to new code.

Hi Raymond E. Camp - good reminders for those who are in the state of New York. As they say - ignorance of the law is no excuse!

Good morning Raymond. No I didn't know. I think it is probably a good idea though.

Hi Raymond

That's pretty important information for consumers, especially those who are selling. We have the same requirement that went into effect in 2015 here in CA. And it's part of our seller disclosures!

Hi Raymond E. Camp 

Here in Massachusetts, we are required to have the 10-year enclosed batteries too. I think it's a good idea.
