The above photo was taken on the Thursday December 4th afternoon outside Public School 81 on Riverdale Avenue. This is the school that former Mayor Mike Bloomberg visited with his then Traffic Commissioner to thank Senator Jeff Klein for the Speed Camera legislation that Senator Klein had sponsored.
Moving to today Mayor Bill de Blasio stood outside PS/MS 95 boasting of the increased number of speed cameras in New York City that was passed by the state legislature. You check the September archive section for September 2nd '120 New Speed Cameras', and you can read about it and see one of the six speed camera cars the mayor showed off.
Starting November 7th the Mayor and City Council passed a law reducing the speed limit on New York City roads from 30 miles per hour to 25 MPH unless otherwise posted. It was said that all street speed limit signs would be changed especially by schools.
So Mister Mayor why is it that in front of a public school that the former Mayor made such a big stink about speeding still has the higher 30 MPH speed limit sign? Is this another 'Tale of Two Cities ' where Manhattan comes first and the outer boroughs come next? Didn't you promise to end that?
