According to the NY Post:
A speed camera in Brooklyn tallied a bank-busting 1,551 tickets in a single day this summer, according to the Department of Transportation. At $50 a pop, the July 7 ticket blitz generated $77,550 for city coffers.
The camera is located near Ocean Parkway at the end of a 400-foot exit ramp — “a good amount of distance for drivers to adjust their speeds,” a DOT spokesman said.
The area’s city councilman, Chaim Deutsch, praised it for making roadways safer.
“If anyone is speeding . . . they deserve a summons,” he told the blog Sheepshead Bites.
But Councilman Mark Treyger has blasted the camera’s location as a speed trap.
Speed-camera violations are issued to anyone going more than 10 mph over the posted speed limit, which in this case is 30 mph.
