Hilariously unconstitutional New York plan to charge New Jersey drivers a special tax in order to preserve deadly speed camera revenue. It’s a violation of the interstate commerce clause.
In the end NYC will lose.
Best quote: “It’s one of the dumbest ideas I’ve ever heard. It will drive more people away from a city desperately trying to recover from COVID,” O’Scanlon told NJ Advance Media. “New Jersey bans automated enforcement because we know it doesn’t improve safety and is theft.”
New York lawmakers want to slap Jersey drivers with a $50 “non-cooperation fee” when they drive into New York City, in response to a bill that would bar the state Motor Vehicle Commission from helping New York enforce red light and speed camera tickets against Garden State drivers.
