The city's top transportation official was busted by cops for speeding and improperly using lights and sirens while driving to Albany to lobby for congestion pricing.
Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan was on her way to the capital on Wednesday when her driver was pulled over by state troopers on the New York State Thruway, her spokesman confirmed.
Sadik-Khan was rushing to Albany to try to persuade lawmakers to pass Mayor Bloomberg's plan to charge drivers a toll to enter Manhattan, one of her priorities in the year since she took office.
Her spokesman refused to say where on the highway the city-owned hybrid was pulled over, how fast the car was traveling and why the driver, a city employee, was speeding and using lights and sirens.
