Officers in this squad car didn’t flash any lights or even sound off their Rumbler siren as a driver made a highly conspicuous, illegal three point turn on Broadway—a major thoroughfare—just across the Bushwick border in Williamsburg this morning.

Its been widely reported that the NYPD has been issuing less tickets for traffic infractions committed by motor vehicles, while increasing the amount of summonses for cyclists, cause clearly, they’re the ones creating all the problems. Could you imagine if they enforced traffic laws as rigorously for cars and pedestrians? The whole city would come to a screeching halt, literally. (Photo: ANIMALNewYork)
