NYC Speed Cameras Now Track Drivers 24/7 in Safety Win for Adams

New York City nighttime drivers, beware: You’re on camera. 

As of 10 p.m. Monday, the city’s 2,000 speed cameras will be operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to track drivers going 10 miles or more above the limit. It’s part of a push by Mayor Eric Adams to reduce traffic deaths, which rose by 44% in the first three months this year compared with 2021. In June, Governor Kathy Hochul signed an Adams-backed state law allowing the city to make the change.
