"CBS 2 Exclusive: De Blasio’s Caravan Caught Speeding, Violating Traffic Laws Embarrassment Comes Just Days After Mayor Announced New Traffic Safety Initiative"
"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.”
