Statement from Senator Michael Gianaris on Speed Cameras

ASTORIA, N.Y. – Senator Michael Gianaris issued the following statement after Mayor Bill de Blasio signed local measures aimed at turning on school zone speed cameras before the first day of school.

“It shouldn’t be this hard to take steps everyone agrees would protect children as they come and go from school, but Senate Republicans insisted on putting politics first. I am glad this creative solution was found to put the cameras back to work.”
