New York mayor Bill de Blasio's two-car caravan was caught on camera speeding through stop signs on Thursday, just a few days after the mayor suggested lowering the speed limit as part of a new traffic safety initiative.
CBS's Marcia Kramer caught the mayor's SUV on camera speeding down city streets, failing to signal, blocking the box, and blowing through stop signs.
When Kramer asked de Blasio's camp for comment, he reportedly told her to contact the NYPD. According to the NYPD, which operates the mayor's caravan, officers "sometimes has to use special driving techniques for protective reasons."
On Tuesday, de Blasio gave a 62-point traffic speech where he announced a plan to lower New York City's speed limit from 30 to 25 and install more speed cameras through the city.
"We want the public to know that we are holding ourselves to this standard," de Blasio said during the speech.
