City Council

Council Transpo Committee Approves Speed Camera Resolution

The City Council transportation committee has overwhelmingly passed a resolution in support of NYC's first-ever speed camera program.

The vote was 10-1, with Vincent Ignizio voting against. Darlene Mealy and Eric Ulrich were absent.

Here's the roll call:

James Vacca: Y
Gale Brewer: Y
Dan Garodnick: Y
David Greenfield: Y
Vincent Ignizio: N
Peter Koo: Y
Oliver Koppell: Y
Jessica Lappin: Y
Darlene Mealy: Absent
Ydanis Rodriguez: Y
Debi Rose: Y
Eric Ulrich: Absent
Jimmy Van Bramer: Y

The full council is expected to vote on the reso tomorrow. Speed cameras have the support of Council Speaker Christine Quinn. It seems as if State Senator Marty Golden is the one remaining major obstacle to this street safety measure.
