NYPD To Crackdown On Speeding
In an ominous article for New York drivers, CBS New York reports Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Vision Zero traffic safety plan has budgeted to purchase 120 new radar guns for local precincts. Putting all those new police radar guns into action will enable officers to build upon the record 137,000 speeding tickets issued in 2016.
This increased enforcement is concerning as researchers from the University of Western Australia concluded that police issuing tickets for even the smallest speeding infractions distracts drivers from other critical aspects of driving.
What can you do if you drive in New York? With features like Speed Monitor, you can let a K40 radar detector focus on your speed while you focus on the traffic in front, next to, and behind you…as well as road conditions. To us, that’s the very definition of a safe driver.
