STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — If it feels like New York City has become the speed camera capital of the world, that’s because it has.

On Tuesday, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that the Department of Transportation (DOT) has achieved its goal of installing speed cameras in 750 school zones throughout the five boroughs making it the largest speed camera network anywhere in the world.

In an effort to further curb speeding on city streets, the mayor also announced that the speed limit will be reduced by five miles per hour on nine streets throughout the city, including one on Staten Island.

“New York City’s children deserve safe, livable communities – and Vision Zero’s groundbreaking work will protect them in their streets,” de Blasio said. “Slower speed limits, speed cameras, and increased enforcement will save lives and keep New York City the safest big city in America for the next generation.”

In Japan, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding is partnering with transportation company Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha and non-profitable organisation Nippon Kaiji Kyokai to pilot the world’s first marine-based carbon-capture system.

The three parties have gained the support of the Maritime Bureau of Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism to conduct the study.

The pilot will be conducted in Tohoku Electric’s K Line’s coal carrier to identify potential risks and conduct operability and safety evaluations to determine ongoing specifications.

The “Carbon Capture on the Ocean” demonstration involves converting the design of an existing carbon capture system for onshore power plants to a marine environment and installing it on board an actual ship in service.
