By the Numbers
Via The Brooklyn Paper:
Road safety advocates say anti-speeding efforts obviously aren’t a priority in Brownstone Brooklyn compared to other parts of the city such as northern Queens, where cops issued 416 speeding tickets across eight police precincts in May.
This works out to just 52 tickets per precinct, or fewer than two per day in neighborhoods that are far more car-heavy than Brownstone Brooklyn. The efforts by Queens’ precincts may make them look like CHiPs compared to Brooklyn’s but it’s not all that hard to write more than zero tickets per month.
I’ll hold my praise for the NYPD’s anti-speeding efforts when one precinct issues 416 tickets in one day, as the 78th could easily do right in front of my apartment. Until then, heads up.
