New York City Hall’s failure left the deadly ‘speed demon’ on the road

Mott allegedly ran a red light before crashing his gray Honda into a black one, killing the baby being pushed in a stroller by her mother on the sidewalk. The collision also injured the mom and another pedestrian. After the crash, police say, he took off on foot and tried to steal a car.

Yet this speed demon had amassed a history of traffic offenses that included running red lights 14 times since 2017, including five times this year. Cameras caught the car speeding in school zones 35 times in 2021 alone, including seven since the start of summer.
