NYC launches campaign to slow speeders near schools

Law enforcement officials are tasked with monitoring traffic and ensuring that laws are properly followed. Speeding tickets are a common consequence for many New York City drivers. Sometimes, a driver is found speeding at excessive rates while other times a citation can be issued when someone is going only a few miles per hour over the posted limit. Many things play into an officer’s decision as to whether or not to issue a speeding ticket in a certain circumstance.

Speeding may seem like a minor offense to some, but many times additional charges and consequences come with a speeding charge.
