Speeding Tickets In NYC Reach $600


traffic-nycPay attention to the speed limit if you drive in New York City, especially the middle of this week. The NYPD is cracking down on speeding drivers as part of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Vision Zero initiative to reduce traffic-related deaths.

Even if you don’t see a traffic officer, you can still get a ticket for speeding. There are speed cameras around the city. The speed limit is 30 mph on local streets, 25 mph in slow zones and 20 mph in school zones.

Fines for speeding range from $90-$600 and up to 11 points on your license.

Last week, the NYPD targeted distracted drivers and handed out 4,000 tickets, mainly to drivers on their cell phones.

  1. Can a driver get points on their license from a speed camera alone?

  2. It’s another way to rob people of their money!

    This has nothing to do with safety!!!

    The people making these rules speed, the cops speed carelessly …

  3. The citizens in Houston have fought these cameras in court and WON. There are no longer any cameras in Texas.

    “This is not what the founding fathers had in mind.”

    I don’t think they had automobiles in mind.

    “I don¬ít live in NYC and this will make sure I stay out of the city this week.”

    Thanks! We don’t need out of town speeders to add to the ones we already have.

    “who put this amateur in office”

    I didn’t vote for him, but I completely support this effort. It is too bad that the speeding crackdown wasn’t in effect before Monday’s fatal crash that killed two in Brooklyn. Auto accidents or auto/pedestrian accidents are killing New Yorkers by the hundreds each year and it is time to stop them!

  5. I hate New York! biggest dump known to me after newark,,,,why is it the Jews live in such a lousy city? America
    in big!
