Where's the fire, Janet?

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.
