Mayor Bill de Blasio Brazen Traffic Scofflaw! Impeach the Hypocrite? Video!
"Just days after Mayor Bill de Blasio announced an aggressive plan to prevent traffic deaths, CBS 2 cameras caught the driver of a car carrying the mayor violating a number of traffic laws.
But the NYPD responded Thursday evening that the mayor`s caravan, which is operated by police, sometimes has to use special driving techniques for protective reasons.
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."
Some political scandals involving breaking of confusing campaign financing laws are difficult for the average person to comprehend, but you don`t have to be a political science major to realize that it`s just plain wrong for a politician to make a mockery of traffic laws.
de Blasio`s caravan sped through stop signs in a residential neighborhood in Queens, would he have been more diligent about obeying traffic laws if he had been driving in the Upper West Side?
The mayor styles himself as a " man of the people", and addressing income inequality is one of the major themes of his administration. But de Blasio was acting like a haughty one per center as he ran roughshod over the proles in Queens.
Actions speak louder than public service announcements, and if New Yorkers follow de Blasio`s example, driving in the Big Apple will be like participating in a demolition derby.
Mayor de Blasio is a hypocrite, a scofflaw, and it`s beginning to look like New Yorkers made a god-awful mistake electing him to office.
