Cars tricked out with secret compartments to stash guns and drugs would be illegal to own – or build – under a bill two lawmakers are pushing in Albany.

“There’s no purpose for a hidden compartment on a vehicle other than to facilitate crimes,” said Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas, a Queens Democrat.

The bill sailed through the Senate codes committee and could see final approval in the GOP-run Senate as early as this week. Simotas said she’s confident the bill also has bipartisan support in the Democrat-controlled Assembly.

The proposed law would mean fines or jail time for owners of cars equipped with hidden compartments.
