NYC mayor's SUV caught breaking traffic laws

By

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's official vehicles were spotted breaking several traffic laws on Thursday.

CBS 2 released video footage of the mayor's two-SUV caravan speeding, running through two stop signs and not signaling when changing lanes.

De Blasio was sitting in the front seat of the lead SUV.

The incident comes just two days after de Blasio outlined his traffic safety plan, which includes a proposal to lower the citywide speed limit.

The mayor's office referred requests for comment to the NYPD because a police officer was behind the wheel of de Blasio's SUV.

The police department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The CBS camera crew caught de Blasio on tape as he returned to City Hall after a press conference in Queens.
