His Honor the Mayor of New York City — (who traveled to Nicaragua in the nineteen eighties to lend his support to the Soviet-backed Sandinista Communist Regime) — was caught speeding, running stop signs, and making illegal lane changes in his mayoral motorcade this week.
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.
As CBS 2′s Marcia Kramer reported Thursday, the mayor’s 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, had been cited, he would have racked up enough points to get his license suspended.
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 of course, he’s a Democrat, his wife’s a lesbian, and his family is multi-racial … so… he gets an exemption.
