Now hes jaywalking!
Mayor de Blasio and his security detail crossed a Brooklyn street against the light Friday on his way to his morning workout just a day after his SUV blew through two stop signs and was speeding in Queens.
Exclusive video taken by The Post caught the mayor dressed in a Brooklyn sweatshirt, slacks and sneakers chatting on his cellphone as he sauntered across 11th Street on 6th Avenue in Park Slope, ignoring the orange hand on the traffic signal that clearly warns pedestrians not to cross.
In January, NYPD precincts launched an aggressive jaywalking ticket blitz that had de Blasios support. His Friday morning flouting of traffic safety rules came a day after deBlasio was caught on camera riding shotgun in a speeding SUV.
His mayoral black two-unit convoy was videotaped by a CBS 2 News crew as it blew through two stop signs in Queens and clocked at nearly 60 miles an hour in a 45 mile per hour zone, and 40 -45 mph in a 30 mph zone. They were not using lights or sirens.

If he was an elderly asian man he would have gotten a beat down.
I am surprised the media is going after him. DimoKKKRATS are always a juicy target as they know the media is usually on their side and don’t report on them.
Bill deBlasio (D............o as I say, not as I do)
He’s a Pig.
Ya, since due Blasio is very liberal, he is held to a different standard. Or normally would be, surprised the media is covering this story.
Well respected man about town...(phony, that is)
Laws don’t apply to the ruling elite, just to the peasants.
The NY Post tends to appeal to a more conservative readership.
“Mayor de Blasio and his security detail...”
Security detail? Hahahahaha!!!! Those purse-carrying clowns wouldn’t last 10 seconds in a firefight.
And, if DeBlasio really wants to enforce jaywalking, he should set an example by pleading guilty himself and writing a personal check for the listed fine to the city government. It might get him some favorable publicity as well.
And he is wearing embarrassingly short pants.
Good thing he wasn’t in Austin,,he’d have been chased and cuffed and arrested.
Jaywalking while talking on a cell phone. Tsk Tsk
Reminds me of that old commercial where the jerk on the phone yells at his employee saying “You’re Fired” and then gets run over by a truck.
Ends up in Hell. I think it was a place that had chocolate but no milk.
It goes without saying that as a liberal abortion loving democrat DeBlasio will end up in Hell so he ought to be careful crossing the street.
Too bad he didn’t do this in Austin. The fat cops would have arrested him.
It's the "New York Post". Not exactly a liberal rag. They always cover these things in New York.
Especially if you have a little “D” after your name.
That top image of DeBLAHHsio reminds me of an episode of 1000 ways to die where a girl walking through a parking lot is so preoccupied yakking to her boyfriend on her cell phone she doesn’t notice his truck barreling down on her and gets flattened.
And as far as these idiot politicians who think they’re above the law speeding recklessly through the city, are they looking for another young Gavin Cato to run over, and trigger another riot, OOPS I mean another week of “yutes” venting?
