New Yorkers have Mayor de Blasio to thank for any tickets they are issued.

At least that’s the lesson one New York police officer hoped to teach a driver as seen in a video originally posted to YouTube.

“Mayor de Blasio wants us to give out summonses, OK? All right?” the cop says to the man.

“I don’t know if you voted for him or not. I don’t live in the city. I wouldn’t have voted for him because this is what he wants. He wants us to give out summonses,” the officer adds.

The summons recipient seemed to take it all in stride.

“I feel you, this is a hard job,” he said.

The New York Post reported:

The 10-second video was posted Saturday by a user with the handle 181elvis before being removed from the site Monday.

A police source said the incident took place in the 46th Precinct, in the west Bronx. Police weren’t able to say when it happened, but said the officer has been suspended during an investigation.

“The incident is under review by the Precinct Commanding Officer,” the NYPD said in a statement, without identifying the cop.
