New York City is going high-tech to crack down on cab drivers who try to skirt traffic by using the bus lanes.

The Taxi and Limousine Commission is mailing out 150 tickets to cabbies caught on camera cruising through the bus-only lanes along 34th Street and Park Avenue.

Each ticket is $150.

The city plans to add five more video cameras along bus routes to help speed up the city's notoriously slow buses.
