Mayor Bill de Blasio became a traffic cop over the weekend — directing his police detail to pull over a motorist who was texting while driving on the FDR Drive, he disclosed on Tuesday.

Speaking at a press conference announcing a new plan to reduce pedestrian fatalities, de Blasio recalled seeing a distracted woman driver “like right next to me out the window texting while driving.”

“The traffic was slow so I’m sure they thought they could get away with it. They were not paying attention to the road and I said, ‘Pull them over!’ ” he said.

“You know give her some on-the-spot education because I’m saying this as a parent, I don’t understand why people think they have a chance. They could kill someone.”

  1. The man is a hypocrite. He himself has his ozone killing limousine speed on local streets, blow thru stop signs, & go thru red lights. All that just to get to his gym in his late morning starts. This is well documented by the media. Mayor DeBlasio is the last person who should be lecturing a taxpayer on the laws of safety. This was clearly a publicity stunt as he mulls a run for President.

  2. Thank you mr mayor. I am so sick of people using their phone while driving. This is dangerous and a chillul hashim! But no one cares.

    • “The only time an Officer is allowed to text while driving is in the case of an emergency or a situation that requires them to read a text or reply to one such as info on an investigation they are currently in the process of responding too ect.” (typos from original included)

      IOW, it’s NOT legal most of the time (not that they’ll ever be busted for it, just like cops cruise through red lights with impunity).

  3. Di Blasio konws one thing and one thing only: $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
