NYC Taxpayers Cover The Cost Of Over 3,400 Government Vehicles


New York City taxpayers are footing the bill for over 3,400 government cars, according to statics that appear in the New York Post.

Besides getting to take the cars home every night the majority of city employees get to fill their cars up using taxpayer funds and have off-the-clock use of the city-issued E-ZPass accounts.

The NYPD scored the most free vehicles with some officials taking home 754 cars, an increase of 61 percent since 2013.

Financial reports show that the city paid $65.5 million in fuel costs and another $265.7 million in vehicle repair costs.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams said, "It is unimaginable that we have so many city vehicles moving around Manhattan and other parts of the city."

A spokesperson from Mayor de Blasio's office said the number of city workers assigned take-home cars is "small" and added that the administration is committed to sustainability and reducing emissions.
