Senate Republicans Kill NYC's Speed Camera Program – Join Us to Hold Them Accountable!

New York City's life-saving speed safety cameras were shut down on July 25th at 5:30 p.m., thanks to Republicans in the New York State Senate, who failed to hold a vote on a reauthorization and expansion bill that the State Assembly passed several weeks ago.

Despite the overwhelming evidence of the effectiveness of speed cameras – speeding has dropped by 63% in locations where the cameras have been installed, pedestrian injuries have declined by 23%, and four out of five drivers wise up fast and never receive a second ticket – Republican Majority Leader John Flanagan refused to recall the Senate for a vote. The speed camera bill was bottled up in the Cities Committee by turncoat "Democrat" Simcha Felder, who caucuses with Republicans, and Bay Ridge Senator Martin Golden, an ostensible co-sponsor of the bill, did next to nothing to move it to a vote.


If the State Senate will not act to protect New York City's children from speeding drivers, we need to act to change the State Senate.

And that's where you come in. We're mounting an effort to change the Senate this fall, and we need volunteers to join us to hit the streets, knock on doors and help elect candidates who will put the safety of New Yorkers before petty party politics.

Can we count on your help? It takes just a moment to click here and volunteer, and we'll follow up soon with next steps. It's literally a matter of life and death.
