NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Drivers in New York City are speeding into ticket trouble in record numbers.
As CBS2’s Tony Aiello reported exclusively Wednesday, summonses for speeding are way up. Aiello went behind the scenes at the NYPD to demonstrate why.
Ever since Mayor Bill de Blasio took office, the city has gotten dramatically tougher on speeders. A typical speeding summons will cost a motorist $150 as well as court costs – and officials said the goal is not to raise revenue, but to save lives.
