The New York State Limousine Safety Task Force met for the third time on Friday morning.

It was created following a deadly 2018 crash of a stretch limo in Schoharie, killing 20 people.

Gov. Kathy Hochul signed a bill, extending the task force.

The task force is working to issue a report and recommendations for safety improvements.

At its meeting – which was live-streamed – the 11 member group talked about protective safety equipment and measures.

They will review side impact protection, roll over protection, airbags, rearview cameras, feasibility of a crash test program and more.

This is the task force’s third meeting because their work was delayed in part by the pandemic.
