De Blasio allegedly spotted speeding through NYC, breaking traffic laws

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s team is saying that everyone shares responsibility for public safety amid a report that the mayor’s official SUVs have broken several traffic laws.

WCBS-TV released video footage Thursday of the mayor’s two-SUV caravan speeding, running through two stop signs and not signaling when changing lanes.

That comes just two days after de Blasio outlined his traffic safety plan, which includes a proposal to lower the citywide speed limit.

De Blasio’s press secretary, Phil Walzak, says the mayor is “firmly committed” to the traffic safety plan, but did not comment directly on the video footage. Instead, he referred questions related to security and transportation to the NYPD.

The SUVs were driven by members of the NYPD on de Blasio’s security team.

The NYPD released a statement saying the drivers receive “specialized training” in terms of maintaining the mayor’s security while driving.

    I can’t believe the line of questioning that the mayor is being asked reguarding how the NYPD, who is responsible for his safety, operates his vehicle,are you kidding me!! Certain security measures have to be taken to protect him, and if that means running a red light or speeding it has to be done. Where he sits in the vehicle and where he’s going is none of your concern. There has to be more important things to talk about.

    After draining, clean the tub and the insert using a mild cleaning agent as well as warm water.

    Sometimes they climb a tree to get away from a chasing

    dog, or other thing they perceive to be a danger.

    This is almost feline abuse in the eyes of your precious

    princess or your precious prince.

    Furniture companies have dozens of nail guns in their wood shops

    as a result of how great they succeed. In addition to cutting painting time, there is less set up and clean up

    involved when you don. I prefer to use particle board because it is less expensive than

    plywood and works just as well.

    problem.
