Nuisances Abolished!

New, 22 comments

So MARTA has adopted a "Ride with Respect" policy that aims to purge the transit system of the scofflaws they call "nuisance riders." Effective Nov. 9, the tough new code will prohibit activities such "solicitation, selling goods or services, loud music, spitting, littering, eating on transit vehicles, drinking on transit vehicles without re-sealable drink containers, fighting and disruptive behavior." (What self-respecting Atlantan hasn't enjoyed a good fight on a MARTA train?) Anyhow, this news has sparked the question: How safe do you feel on MARTA now? [Patch]
