If New York City being the most terrifying place to drive in the country wasn't enough, this should provide more motivation to stop speeding. All Mayor Bill de Blasio needs to crack down hard on speeders is a signature from Governor Andrew Cuomo, which is reportedly an inevitability.
The proposed new laws will both lower speed limits in the city and increase the presence of speed cameras. They show de Blasio's commitment to eliminating traffic fatalities in NYC, a mission called "Vision Zero." Whether you agree with his methods are not, the mayor is following up on his promises to change traffic laws.
