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.
As CBS 2′s Marcia Kramer reported Thursday, the mayors two-car caravan was seen speeding, blowing through stop signs, and violating other traffic laws. Kramer reported that if the driver of the lead car, which carried the mayor in its passenger seat, would have racked up enough points to get his license suspended if hed been ticketed.
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 Blasios cars going through a stop sign at a Queens intersection, and that wasnt the only traffic violation caught on tape.
The safety violations came just two days after the mayor unveiled his traffic safety plan.
Weve put a very bold plan before you, and we want the public to know were are holding ourselves to this standard, de Blasio said Tuesday.
The mayors two-car caravan violated speed laws and racked up other motor vehicle violations after he held a news conference in Maspeth, Queens on pothole repairs.
The grand total for all four violations, had they been handed out, is 13. Your license can be suspended if you rack up just 11 points.

Doesn’t apply to that FOOKING Commie.
UH...’Do as I say, not as....you know the rest....
Or...’The new law and regulations are not in effect yet’.
Or...’I am hizhonor, I can do what I want, when I want.
Or...’If you really knew who I am, you wouldn’t have turned my driver in’.
Or...’Get the name of the reporter who wrote this story and he loses his City Hall Press Pass Credentials’.
I am sure he will have some witty remark, blaming others and saying he had no control over the incident-
WHICH is exactly why we need these new laws proof being ME and MY driver don’t follow the present ones.
Know your place, peasant! His work is too important for these trivialities.
It’s always the same with these “elites”.
Maybe he needed to go to tbe bathroom?
That’s what socialists do. I’m glad NY made the decision to vote Deblasio. Maybe they’ll learn something.
Laws don’t apply to the ruling class, just to peasants.
Can you say Ed Rendell and Jon Corzine, both notorious violators of vehicle codes.The law does not aply to them because they are too important!
Many people here will say it’s a good idea (the crack down) but the good Mayor should be held to the same standard. The Mayor did use the word “safety” after all. That is the magical word that justifies picking each others pockets and enriching the municipality, it’s lawyers, and it’s lawyers in shabby polyester robes.
Apparently people are not aware of the Commie motto “Rules are for peasants, not for us”
Look for him to issue a waiver for all involved. Including those using their gun’s laser pointer as a pointer.
Above the Law.
Stories like this won’t be reported once the monitors are placed in news rooms.
Some animals are more equal than others.
Sounds like the mayor’s car needs a governor...
He said he was holding himself to the same standard. And then turned that statement into a lie.
Taking driving lessons from Jon Corzine it seems... another phoney lefty and a crook too.
I get that. But i reject even his initial premise.
It’s good to be the King.
New York voters keep proving each and evert day the wisdom of their votes.
Maybe the commie mayor should stick to cabs.
It’s always “Do what I command, not what I do” for these despicable commie creeps, innit?
Mayor Wilhelm is such a piece of liberal garbage. I hope the 74% of moronic New Yorkers that voted for him are realzing the massive mistake they made.
Bloomberg was a nanny stater, but sane on economic policy. This current mayor wants to take it even further. Lowering speed limits. Adding revenue generating speed and red light cameras. Shutting off taxi meters if the cabs are speeding.
What’s next? Giving out jaywalking tickets in NYC? Satan will get elected over this commie if he starts doing that.
