De Blasio Driver Caught Violating Traffic Laws

Just days after New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) announced an aggressive plan to prevent traffic deaths, CBS New York caught the driver of a car carrying the mayor violating a number of traffic laws -- including "speeding, blowing through stop signs, and violating other traffic laws."

When the mayor announced his 62-point safe streets initiative, he said, "We want the public to know that we are holding ourselves to this standard."

Politicker: "Reached for comment, both the mayor's office and the NYPD defended the conduct without addressing the particulars of the CBS allegations, which included running stop signs and going up to 15 miles per hours over the speed limit."
