Extrajudicial Taxes: Brooklyn

A speed camera on Ocean Avenue near a highway off-ramp and Lincoln High School in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn gave out 1,551 tickets one day earlier this year, according to the New York Post.

The information comes from a Department of Transportation report that just got released. The big pay day came on July 7, when school wasn’t even in session. Each ticket is $50, so the city snagged a cool $77,550. It’s one of 10 speed cameras on Ocean Parkway.

‘Really, we promise you proles people it is about safely.  Trust me, I am the government’
