Ticket Cam Alert NYC: Data shows speed camera violations soared in lockdown

The Independent Budget Office says that although parking violations were issued despite restrictions being lifted during the March 23 to May 31 period in Question, 77% of all summonses were for speed.  The IBO report compares March 1 through March 22 with just under 15,000 speed camera violations to the over two month period on lockdown which saw over 22,000 issued.

Not only was speeding up, revenue from fines was also down across the board for the city which had collected over $70 million from parking and speed camera violations in March until it came crashing down to $30 million in May. The IBO analysis based its findings on data from the city Department of Finance.
