More De Blasio hypocrisy, he cracks down on pedestrian jaywalking and then jaywalks himself
Now De Blasio has done the same with jaywalking. From the New York Post:
Mayor de Blasio, who has been lecturing about pedestrian safety since he stepped foot in City Hall, strolled across a Brooklyn street against the light Friday in a blatant jaywalking violation.It is hard to see what the security claim could be regarding this walking. In any case, if having De Blasio walk on the streets is a safety risk, possibly he should consider getting a treadmill.
Hizzoner was gabbing on his old-school flip-phone as he slowly made his way across 11th Street on Sixth Avenue in Park Slope — and his NYPD detail faithfully jaywalked with him.
A Post reporter caught the foot faux pas on video a day after de Blasio’s SUV was filmed blowing through two stop signs in Queens and twice going 15 mph over the speed limit.
A prickly de Blasio went for the walk after punting questions about his lead-footed detail to the NYPD, saying the maneuvers were a matter of police “security protocols.” . . .
