Speeding crackdown in New York City

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Pay attention to the speed limit if you drive in New York City, especially on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.

The NYPD is cracking down on speeding drivers as part of Mayor Bill de Blasio's Vision Zero initiative to reduce traffic-related deaths.

Even if you don't see a traffic officer, you can still get a ticket for speeding. There are speed cameras around the city.

The speed limit is 30 mph on local streets, 25 mph in slow zones and 20 mph in school zones.

Fines for speeding range from $90-$600 and up to 11 points on your license.

Last week, the NYPD targeted distracted drivers and handed out 4,000 tickets, mainly to drivers on their cell phones.
