NYC Speed Camera's

 

Just heard if passed will be installing up to 40 speed cameras, looks like on local streets shopping areas and schools.

Don't be fooled: it's a reverse psychology stunt!

Potholes, construction plates, ruts, construction closures, nowhere to park: (not even in pay garages), lanes consumed and closed for normal vehicular traffic, using every excuse imaginable for real time ticketing. The mayor has actually made it as hostile as possible for tourist or real shopping. The idea that anyone would be foolish enough or able to actually speed in Manhattan laughable! razz

not speed cameras

you need to remember they are traffic enforcement cameras, think of all the fun the bureaucrats will have with that

maybe?

If NYC conditions make it impossible to speed, maybe the cameras can be used to control the lawlessness of big cups of pepsi?

Or

Waste Of Time

Traffic is so bad here in NYC it's a joke. Only time and place this will work is on the West Side Highway after midnight on weekends where the posted limit is 35 and most people do 50. Just like the RLC's here, once you learn where they are you know how to adjust your trip.

definitely needed

Traffic is bad in NYC? Yes, it is, but it's a walk in the park compared to some other places. If you're not a smoker, NYC laid a smack down on smokers. So. Same thing, if you're not a red light runner or not a stereotypical speeder, why get all in a huff over more enforcement of laws you do not break?

amazing

OMG we have an in-law who is constantly asking another in-law to buy cigs....poor me, poor me, they're $12-$14 a pack, can you get me some in Philly, they're only $5.49 there. Here's an idea, how about quitting, and saving $392/mo.?

LOL I remember in the 90's, my buddy and I were non-smokers, but we each bought a carton at the duty free for his brother. At $19.99/CAD it converted to $12.99 USD, for a carton.

speed cameras in NY

The Governor has struck it down, no speed cameras in NYC or NYS for now.

Why???

Because sometimes the machines cite a person who has done NOTHING wrong.
