NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Just days after Mayor Bill de Blasio announced an aggressive plan to prevent traffic deaths, CBS 2 cameras caught the driver of a car carrying the mayor violating a number of traffic laws.
But the NYPD responded Thursday evening that the mayor’s caravan, which is operated by police, sometimes has to use special driving techniques for protective reasons.
When the mayor announced his 62-point safe streets initiative, which includes lowering the speed limit to 25 mph, he said, “We want the public to know that we are holding ourselves to this standard.”
But Kramer reported the mayor failed to practice what he preached Thursday.
CBS 2 crews found Mayor de Blasio’s cars going through a stop sign at a Queens intersection, and that wasn’t the only traffic violation caught on tape.
so the NYPD tells you the actual reason for what happened...and this is the same NYPD that just finished up months ago, ferrying around over 16 years of republican mayors. but, since the mayor is now a democrat, it's all his fault because he's liberal elitist...how much more stupid can you make that sound?....what next?...do you want to see his birth certificate?edit on 21-2-2014 by jimmyx because: (no reason given)
“We want the public to know that we are holding ourselves to this standard.”
that he himself, is quoted as saying this, at the time he did so.
I would just point out that mr De Blasio sits in the back , with zero control of the car

No Wrabbit, you have chosen a path of honor. Had you stripped yourself of your soul, and shoved your paw out for filling at the expense of your fellow rabbits....this is what I imagine the Political Wrabbit would look like....
A far cry from the sweet gentle soul you are....
I left NY 13 years ago and was glad they finally lost the billionaire mayor.Now this guy?Does it seem the political parties are indistinguishable even on the local level?Who actually DOES represent the people anymore.Certainly not the most recent smuck mayors.
