Governor Hochul has signed off on a new bill aimed at protecting drivers who purchase used vehicles.

Under the legislation, car dealers are banned from selling those vehicles to customers if they don't have a working airbag inside. There must also be a functioning readiness indicator light that shows the airbag will deploy in case of a crash. The governor says all New Yorkers deserve to be safe on the road and it's crucial they have the protection of an airbag while behind the wheel.
