that is not the discussion here though that is a strawman.
it doesn't matter if you are a cop or the president of the US the law still applies to you as well. you don't get a special pass just because.
in this case the driver of the mayors car broke the law and should be cited the various fines of breaking those laws.
I don't link well, but it is a simple matter to GOOGLE/BING cbs news mayor runs stop sign.... several other sources say the same thing- if you can google NY traffic stuff I reckon ya can handle this....

traffic laws are still laws this is what we call nit picking. the fact still remains that the driver of the SUV broke traffic laws in a non-emergancy situation in which any other person would be cited with moving violation and given that the speed was 15 mph or more over the speed limit probably reckless endangerment.
his license would be suspended.
BTW, you can be put in jail for speeding.
And I did Google the story and found one by CBS but it had no link or description of the rules concerning when and why police officers can disregard the law.
