Skip to comments.De Blasio SUV broke traffic laws after safety push
Posted on 02/21/2014 10:28:34 AM PST by chessplayer
Mayor de Blasios SUV was caught on camera speeding through Queens and blowing through two stop signs Thursday just two days after he announced a sweeping street-safety plan.
The mayor who was riding shotgun on the way back to City Hall from a pothole-filling photo op was twice clocked going 15 mph over the speed limit by a WCBS/Channel 2 news crew.
The two-car caravan also ran past two stop signs without even tapping the brakes and changed highway lanes without signaling, the CBS video shows.
De Blasios wild ride came after his pledge to personally abide by his Vision Zero proposals, which aim to entirely eliminate traffic deaths in the city by 2024 with measures that include a 25 mph speed limit.
The violations racked up by de Blasios driver would have cost anyone else their license on the DMVs point-penalty system.

Well, he’s a liberal! Libs believe laws are made for the little people and conservatives, not them!!
Hahaha. Laws are for little people.
Everybody hates Bill de Blasio. Little kids in New York City.....their first words are, “I hate Bill de Blasio.” What kind of jackass makes up his own name and puts a “de” in it?
It’s the Marxist way though: Do as I say not as I do. BTW it’s going to be interesting to watch how all the libs who voted for this Marxist fool like it when they are late for work and find out the taxi they just hailed can only go 25 MPH LOL! LOL! “Don’t worry sir, we should be there in oh, 4 hours!” LOL!
He’s a Commie so its A OK
I'm willing to give him a pass on the speed even thouth he's a left wing hypocritical liberal douche bag. Speed limits are generally 15 mph too low anyway, BUT
The two-car caravan also ran past two stop signs without even tapping the brakes
His driver's ass should be slung in jail for this one. Some kongress ahole named Janklow killed a kid out west by running a stop sign.
What’s the big deal? It’s not like he once strapped a dog carrier to his car roof, or anything like that.
A Marxist does. Seriously, if you look up people like Stalin, Castro, Chavez etc almost all of them changed their names:
Here I looked it up:
Fake name Real name
Josef Stalin - Ioseb Besarionis dze Jugashvili
Fidel Castro - Fidel Ruz
Hugo Chavez - Hugo Frias
Vladimir Lenin - Vladimir Ulyanov
Barack Obama - Barry Soetoro
Bill de Blasio - Warren Wilhelm
What’s the fuss? He is a Party member.
This last part I love. So in keeping with being the Marxist puke he is:
“The mayor who vowed a transparent administration routinely holds secret meetings and keeps events hidden from his public schedule.
This week alone, the mayor failed to disclose a meeting he and wife Chirlane McCray held at City Hall with top White House adviser Valerie Jarrett until after it was over.
He also barred reporters from a speech he gave in Midtown to the Real Estate Board of New York.
It was only after hearing complaints from the news media that City Hall released a partial audio recording of his remarks.
The administration has barred photographers from a number of meetings, allowing Hizzoner to curate his image by choosing which photos to share with the public often via Twitter.
As public advocate, de Blasio last year released a 29-page report blasting city agencies for not making information readily available to the public.
The report even called for proactive disclosure by the city of the data most frequently requested by citizens and reporters.
Transparency and responsiveness in government decisions and policies engenders trust in our democratic process, the April 2013 report says.
Yet de Blasio initially barred reporters from his swearing-in on New Years Eve, instead offering solely to Web-cast the historic event.”
That’s right! Freakin’ psychos they are, they think changing their names will make them appear more radical. Wow dude, you changed your name. You are like so rad. This doosh de Blasio, I cannot wait till this yayhole implodes. I moved out of New York city last year and I grew up there, I just couldn’t take the libs and the fascism anymore and now they got a hardcore Marxist as Mayor. I cannot wait till this dikwad blows up in their face. Mr. “working class” already starting in on people who drive for a living. By forcibly imposing a 25 MPH speed limit he has all but obliterated the entire taxi industry. So now all his rich Marxist friends when they want to go to some party celebrating the birthday of Castro can take the subway or bus like the rest of the peasants and you just know they are going to LOVE that! ha ha ha!
He’s an asshat.
Watch that great city go back to the days of Dinkins. The hookers are already coming back and the trash is starting to pile up. Snow removal has been a nightmare.
We will need another Rudy to clean this place up when he’s done screwing it over.
This is what you get when only 17% of registered voters turn out. Thank God I don’t live there.
He’s going to be even worse than Bloomberg.
Wait until the windshield squeegiers return.
this kind of photo op behavior - favored and increased heavily since Gulliani in NYC - is a dumbing down of the populace, as if nothing can be done, nothing is getting done unless the mayor shows up and gets the TV cameras on him to say “see, I care”
when, if they really cared they’d spend more time directing activity from their office and less time in front of the camera
I don’t know which came first. Was it the dumbed down expectations of the populace, egged on by a stupid media asking “where’s the mayor”, or did it start with mayors behaving like publicity hounds so much that the people and the media could ask “well, where’s the mayor this time”.
Its all farce to me and reflects the sorry state of government and people’s expectations of those in government, in terms of what are the real jobs of those in government.
If that is the case, how did he get elected?
Oh but he’s a liberal! Liberals don’t have to obey the rules and laws that they make for other people. They are the elite ruling class, living off our hard work. As thanks, they look down their noses at us.
