NYC mayor's SUV caught breaking traffic laws

New York (AP) - New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's team is saying that everyone shares responsibility for public safety amid a report that the mayor's official SUVs have broken several traffic laws.

WCBS-TV released video footage Thursday of the mayor's two-SUV caravan speeding, running through two stop signs and not signaling when changing lanes

That comes just two days after de Blasio outlined his traffic safety plan, which includes a proposal to lower the citywide speed limit.

De Blasio's press secretary, Phil Walzak, says the mayor is "firmly committed" to the traffic safety plan, but did not comment directly on the video footage. Instead, he referred questions related to security and transportation to the NYPD.

The SUVs were driven by members of the NYPD on de Blasio's security team.

The NYPD released a statement saying the drivers receive "specialized training" in terms of maintaining the mayor's security while driving.
