    Prior to your entrance to this thread, none of my posts had anything to do with the law. You then asserted as fact that the driver broke the law. It is your obligation to back up your assertion and you have failed to so.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    you obviously didn't read the OP. he was caught going through 2 or 3 stops signs. going 15 miles/h over the speed limit. please read the OP so that you know what we are discussing.
    i didn't assert anything it is in the very 1st post of this thread.

    now you have to prove that the mayor and his driver in a non-emergancy situation is allowed to break traffic laws. you are going to have a very hard time doing this.

    I think this is a prime example of how our elected officials see themselves as the elites with do as I say not as I do laws. They always seem to know what is best for the little guy and think the little guy doesn't know or is even aware what is best for him. Then our political elite do exactly the opposite of what they are telling us what is best for us.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    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.

    whether he was knew or didn't know is irrelevant. the person driving did know and should be held accountable. driving like that puts the public at risk.

    I suppose he should follow the speed limit exactly (he was going like 10mph over), and then blame any failures on missing deadlines due to traffic. I suppose you would rather the business of the city wait for traffic to clear out.

    I'm not saying that you don't have a point, I just disagree about how big this issue actually is.

    I didn't say he went through "many"; I said he was in an residential area where, typical for NYC, there are many stop signs.

    And it's not like he's in a bus or a train with darkened windows. It's a SUV! He's not oblivious...or maybe he is

    It is against the law to speed. It's not a criminal offense, but it is against the law.

    That isn't a legitimate reason to speed. If you get pulled over for speeding on your way to work, "I'll miss a deadline" will not get you out of a ticket.

    So when a police officer turns on his lights and is responding to call, it's illegal for them to speed?

    It could be if it deals with the saftey and welfare of a city of millions of people. Most jobs don't carry that kind of responsibility.
