NEW YORK (AP) — New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday that everyone must follow the law, but he doesn't question his drivers' judgment after video footage showed his official vehicle breaking several traffic laws as he sat in the front seat.
De Blasio said Monday that "no one is above the law," but noted that he won't second-guess the police officers who drive him or question their security protocols. The mayor also said he does not believe the video undermines his recently launched traffic safety campaign.
WCBS-TV spotted the mayor's two-SUV caravan speeding and running stop signs last Thursday.
De Blasio refused to answer questions Friday about the incident, instead deferring them to New York City Police Commissioner William Bratton, who said he wasn't "overly concerned" by the footage.
