(a) Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, the Commissioner of Motor Vehicles may register a DUKW amphibious vehicle, manufactured by General Motors Corporation during the years 1942 to 1945, inclusive, or similar amphibious vehicle as an antique, rare or special interest motor vehicle, in accordance with the provisions of section 14-20, unless such amphibious vehicle has been modified by the addition of seats to transport passengers for hire, in which case the commissioner may issue to the owner of such amphibious vehicle registration for a motor bus, in accordance with the provisions of subsection (d) of section 14-49. No such registration shall be issued until such amphibious vehicle has passed a safety inspection conducted by the Department of Motor Vehicles. (452)

(b) Any traffic authority, as defined in subdivision (6) of section 14-297, may impose restrictions or prohibitions concerning the use and operation of any such amphibious vehicle registered as a motor bus, on any highway or bridge under its jurisdiction as such traffic authority determines to be necessary for the protection of the passengers of such amphibious vehicle and highway users.

Sec. 14-26. Motor or service buses, taxicabs, school buses, motor vehicles in livery service and school buses used in part in livery service. (454)(Text)

(a) Each owner or lessee of a motor bus, service bus, taxicab, school bus or motor vehicle in livery service shall file in the office of the commissioner a special application, containing his name, residence and post-office address and a description of the motor vehicle owned or leased by him, which shall include the name of the maker and such other information as the commissioner may require. The commissioner may register such motor vehicle as a motor bus or as a service bus or as a taxicab or as a school bus or as a motor vehicle in livery service or as a school bus used in part in livery service; but no such registration shall be issued to the owner or lessee of any such motor vehicle unless it is in suitable condition for carrying passengers and is equipped as required by law. The registration number and certificate of registration of each such vehicle shall be special, and such certificate of registration shall contain such information as the commissioner may require. No registration shall be issued to the owner or lessee of a motor bus who has not obtained a certificate of public convenience and necessity from the Department of Transportation, in accordance with the provisions of section 13b-80. No registration shall be issued to the owner or lessee of a taxicab who has not obtained a certificate of public convenience and necessity from the Department of Transportation in accordance with the provisions of section 13b-97. No such vehicle shall be registered unless the owner thereof has complied with the provisions of section 14-29, and no such vehicle shall be operated upon any highway without first being registered in accordance with the provisions of section 14-49. The commissioner may issue, to an applicant for registration of more than one motor bus, a certificate or certificates of registration containing a general distinguishing number and mark assigned to such applicant upon application to him therefor, which application shall be made in such form and contain such information as the commissioner may determine. Each motor bus included in such registration shall be regarded as registered under and having assigned to it such general distinguishing number and mark. The commissioner may impose upon the issuance and use of each such general registration such conditions, limitations and restrictions as he may determine. Such motor bus owners shall not be required to carry such certificates upon the vehicles registered under the provisions of this section, but shall keep a record of each person operating any motor bus so registered in sufficient detail to promptly identify such person at any specified time, which record shall be subject to the inspection of any officer designated by the commissioner. If any such registrant fails to keep such record or to produce it for inspection as hereinbefore provided, such failure shall be sufficient cause for the commissioner to cancel or suspend such registration. The commissioner may require of such registrant a bond satisfactory to him in an amount not to exceed ten thousand dollars, conditioned upon compliance with the laws of the state and the regulations of the commissioner concerning the use of such registration, number and mark, or otherwise conditioned as he may direct, which bond shall be forfeited for any violation of the conditions thereof. The commissioner may issue to the holder of any such general motor bus or interstate registration one or more registrations and number plates for motor vehicles in livery service which may be used interchangeably with such motor bus or interstate registration in accordance with such conditions and regulations as he may impose, provided the number of interstate registrations and number plates issued shall not exceed the number of intrastate registrations and number plates authorized by the Department of Transportation. (455)

(b) The certificate of registration of a motor bus, service bus, taxicab, school bus and motor vehicle in livery service shall, at all times, be carried upon such motor vehicle and shall be subject to examination upon demand by any person authorized by law. (456)

(c) Any person who violates any provision of this section shall have committed an infraction. Any person who violates any provision of subsection (b) of this section shall be fined fifty dollars. (457)

Sec. 14-27. Number plates for public service motor vehicles. (458)(Text)
