“Speeding kills. More New Yorkers are killed in fatal crashes caused by speeding than in any other type of traffic crashes. We commend the State Legislature for passing legislation, strongly called for by the Council, authorizing a speed camera pilot program in New York City.

The Council, through home rule message and resolution, requested critical legislation to protect drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists alike. Speed cameras will reduce speeding, protect our school children and save lives. We applaud the Assembly and Senate for taking action on this vital legislation and urge Governor Cuomo to sign this bill without delay.”
