Brooklyn, NY - Dashcam: NYPD Truck Passes Flashing Red Light School Bus In Borough Park
Brooklyn, NY - An NYPD truck driving down the streets of Borough Park this morning crossed more than just the yellow line when it passed a stopped school bus whose red lights were flashing this morning; it violated New York State law that requires all drivers on any roadway to stop for school buses that are loading or discharging passengers.
Dashcam video obtained by VIN News show an NYPD truck loaded with police barriers turning onto 18th Avenue across from Gravesend Park near 56th Street this morning. Half a block later, as the truck headed northeast towards 55th Street, the NYPD truck can be observed slowing down before crossing the double yellow line and passing a school bus with red lights flashing and stop sign extended.
Police said that they had not been made aware of the incident but would look into the matter.
Passing a stopped school bus with flashing red lights is prohibited on all roadways in the State of New York, punishable by hefty fines, possible imprisonment and points on the drivers license.
