Following her jaw-dropping Christmas campaign, now the 23-year-old has stripped down for a two-spot Spring 2015 advertising campaign for Italy-based lingerie firm Yamamay. Check out both parts, above and below.

Number Of Speeding Tickets Issued Increases Thousands Following Speed Limit Change

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A change in the speed limit in New York City means an apparent ticket blitz by the  NYPD.

The speed limit has decreased in NYC from 30 to 25, but the number of speeding tickets has increased thousands.

“I see people out flying, driving very fast,” one taxi driver said.

As part of Vision Zero, the city’s plan to end traffic deaths and injury on the streets, the speed limit on most city streets was lowered in November 2014, CBS2’s Alice Gainer reported.

“We’ll be doing a lot of public education over the coming months. We’ll be doing a lot of warnings, obviously enforcement over time,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said back then.

Instead of over time, the NYPD wasted no time in ticketing drivers, Gainer reported.

In November 2013, 6,600 speeding tickets were written. In November 2014, the same month as the speed change, 13,606 tickets were handed out.

In December 2013, 5,902 tickets were issued while in December 2014, 6,494 were written. January 2014 had 2,984 tickets issued, with 9,079 given out in January 2015.

But not everyone sees the blitz. CBS2 stopped by a local taxi stand and spoke with drivers.

One man Gainer spoke with said he hasn’t noticed an increase in speeding tickets among drivers. In fact, many of the drivers said they actually applaud the effort.

“Less accidents,” one driver said.

“I’m more careful,” said another.

Some drivers CBS2 spoke with said whether the NYPD is giving one less speeding ticket or they’re giving thousands of tickets, it doesn’t matter– if you’re speeding, you’re breaking the law.

A City Hall spokesman responded, saying in part, “…the NYPD has put new resources and tools into enforcing the speed limit to protect New Yorkers. Last year was the safest year on record for pedestrians.”

So, until drivers slow down, the tickets won’t either, Gainer reported.

New Jersey Dad Builds Ice Luge In Backyard

CRANFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – A family in Cranford, New Jersey is doing some fancy sledding this winter, all thanks to their devoted dad who took it upon himself to create something on his own.

As CBS2’s Scott Rapoport reported, breaking out the sleds and hitting the hills is the coolest part of winter for kids.

But how about your own personal luge course — 55-feet-long — right in your very own yard?

“Anytime you want hot cocoa, no more than 5 feet away at any given time,” said Joe Colangelo.

The luge course is the brainchild of Colangelo. He built it for his children — 4-year-old James, 3-year-old Evelyn and 10-month-old Margaret.

“(Why?) We’re all stuck in this winter together, we might as well have some fun with it,” he said.

Colangelo’s neighbors said they are awe-struck.

“It’s excellent. I can’t believe he had such dedication,” said Heather Priestley.

Colangelo said it took him about three weeks to make it all happen. He started small, and then went bigger and bigger.

Soon, others in the neighborhood were coming by to try it, including CBS2’s Rapoport.

“I’m really not so sure this is a good idea,” Rapoport said before the push-off.

When Colangelo posted a home video of his creation on YouTube, it went viral with more than 900,000 views.

Colangelo said to keep the course frozen and in optimum working order, he sprays water on it with shower nozzles from his bathroom window.

CBS2 gently pointed out to Colangelo that his kids were not wearing helmets. He said safety is very important to him, but that on TV the hills look faster and the banks look steeper than they really are, and that his kids are fine.

Last week, Denver Nuggets players broke huddle with a chant of ”1-2-3 … Six weeks,” interpreted by some as a countdown to the end of a season gone sour. Brian Shaw didn’t even make it that far. The first-time head coach was fired after 1 1/2 seasons on Tuesday, with the team at 20-39 and on a six-game losing streak. Assistant coach Melvin Hunt will be the interim coach.
