It's just bad PR to be promoting pedestrian safety while being a danger to pedestrians. He's not going to lose his job over this, but it just does not look good. It's the kind of thing that, if repeated, can create a truly damaging perception of a candidate.

And then there's the "Chris Christie factor" - even if he didn't know about it, he's the guy who's held responsible.
yet because it is the mayor or part of the mayor's party nothing happens.
whoever was driving violated the law and is subject to the same laws as everyone else. being mayor or the mayor's driver doesn't give you special privilege to do what you want.
