Mayor Bill deBlasio came to PS/MS 95 this morning to announce 120 new speed cameras for streets around NYC schools. Standing in front of two (and next to one in a photo above) of the six new mobile speed camera cars Mayor de Blasio praised State Senate Co-Leader Jeff Klein saying that Senator Klein was an intricate part of getting this and other legislation such as the new slower 25 mile per hour NYC speed limit passed in Albany. There will be 120 new speed cameras an increase from the present 20 for a total of 140 citywide. These speed cameras will give students an advantage when school returns said NYC DOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg.
Also on hand were Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., Councilman Andrew Cohen, Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz, Community Board 8 Chairman Dan Padernacht, 50th Precinct commanding officer Deputy Inspector Paul Rasa, and many others.
