Special driver's licenses available for vets

Designation is intended to speed up discounts


New York residents who are military veterans can apply to the state Department of Motor Vehicles for a special designation on their driver's license.

The special licenses are intended to eliminate the need for veterans to carry separate documentation proving their military service in order to take advantage of discounts or other programs available to vets.

Whether it will result in smoother traffic stops for designated vets is open to interpretation.

The bill was introduced by Sen. Greg Ball, an Air Force veteran. It went into effect on Thursday, a year after being signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
