A New York Daily News Exclusive

By Kenneth Lovett

ALBANY — Mayor de Blasio has found support within the state Legislature for his push for more speed cameras around city schools, the Daily News has learned.

A bill introduced this week by breakaway Democratic Sen. Jose Peralta would bring the number of speed cameras in school zones up to 750. There are currently 140 authorized under law.

The bill, which is expected to add Senate Independent Democratic Leader Jeffrey Klein as a co-sponsor, is also set to be introduced in the Assembly by Manhattan Democrat Deborah Glick.

It would allow the cameras to be installed up to a half-mile away from school entrances. The current limit is a quarter-mile.
