-________-Wait until you see what else is possibly in the works, Gatso Stoplight cameras are already in Albany and may be rolled out State wide. Also there are considerations of other speed measuring devices included with the new toll systems that are slated to be installed at the end of this year through 2010.. The governor could include the Average Speed cameras as part of the new Camera toll system as an executive order.
The state is hurting big time for $$. With these new tax laws a lot of people and businesses are moving out (over 40K higher income earners left in 2018 alone), and the exodus to Florida and other lower taxed states will continue. Currently the deficit is around $3 Billion and if the economy slows, it will balloon quickly from less taxes on wall street earnings and less sales tax collected.
We spent over $4 Billion on the Tappan Zee bridge (closer to $6 Billion when you add the soft costs, transportation, LEO overtime etc.) and then the Governor renamed the bridge after his father.
NY is now the highest taxed state with the average taxpayer sending 13% of their earned income towards State Taxes (Income, Property, Sales, Gas, Excise and mortgage recording - which is not everything) All of this paid with less of a federal tax deduction due to the SALT limitations.
Trooper unions are currently our best defense against new automated speed enforcement devices, however if there is no money to pay their salary al bets are off. With a large percentage of the population from the city who do not drive, there is little risk of the politicians being voted out over these revenue raising techniques as those voters will never incur this extra road tax.
That would just end up increasing spending on incarcerations and court costs in the long run. Then again, by the time it had an effect they'd be out of office anyway so they probably wouldn't care.Idea for Cuomo & Deblasio: Reduce the Speed Limit to 2 MPH so more ticket income can be collected.
Yep. These twats are just fine. I’m sure the speed cams will help.I'm sure the greatest problem facing the people of New York is speeding. If only everyone obeyed the PSL, it would be nirvana in every way.
Once the new speed cams are active I will feel much safer driving in NYC. Everything else wrong with NYC will just fade away as I embrace my newfound comfort. I'm sure I won't even notice the 30 mile stretch of tents and tarps draped along the NYC streets. It'll be nothing but roses and white picket fences.I'm sure the greatest problem facing the people of New York is speeding. If only everyone obeyed the PSL, it would be nirvana in every way.
