New York City Mayor Eric Adams announced that the city’s speed cameras will be operating 24 hours a day starting August 1.

Adams made the announcement Thursday afternoon alongside Department of Transportation Commissioner Ydanis Rodriguez.

“Overnight and weekend crashes have become far too prevalent in recent years, and we are so grateful that state legislators heard our call for 24/7 speed-camera coverage,” Rodriguez said.

New York Governor Kathy Hochul signed a state law last week that now allows the camera to operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The city’s 2,000 automated speed cameras were previously authorized by the state to operate only on weekdays, between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m., missing the 59 percent of traffic fatalities that occurred when the cameras were required to be turned off.

New camera operation times will take effect one month after a public awareness campaign that prepares drivers and all New Yorkers for the coming change.

That campaign starts on July 1.

  1. Presumably these have a fiber-optic or other wired interface. It was documented that the three c19 outbreaks in Wuhan back in ‘2019 and ‘2020 were due to 5g rollouts, the latter one in March (of ‘2020) was when they rolled out the strata for traffic control devices.

  2. In a city void of “ayin roeh”(loosely translated as: gods watching), let them have cameras cover every inch of nyc!!!

  3. This doesn’t quite have anything to do with traffic cameras, but it’s outrageous that in NY one can steal $999.99 without getting in trouble.

  5. Clairification: meaning: liberals don’t believe in god, and therefore cameras can be a deterrent to inhibit them. “for if not for fear of the government men would swollow each other alive-ethics of the fathers”
