A bill introduced in Albany would allow New York City to install up to 40 cameras around town to catch speeders. They would work like the red-light cameras already in place by automatically issuing violations, CBS 2′s Dick Brennan reported.
Under the proposal, if you go more than 10 miles over the 30 mph speed limit, the fine would be $50. If drivers go more than 30 mph over, the fine doubles to $100.
But in any case, drivers would get no points on their license.
With a roll of his eyes and a little smile, Danny Rodriguez admitted he speeds every now and then.
“Ten miles over the speed limit — many times,” Rodriguez told 1010 WINS’ Al Jones on Tuesday night.
So Rodriguez is not really happy with the plan to put the cameras up around the city.
“Stop signs and red-lights, I agree with. A little bit over the speed limit? Everyone goes a little over the speed limit once in a while,” he said.
