New Subway Rules

The following new rules went into affect today on New York's Subway.

Jump the turnstile or enter the system improperly, even if your MetroCard is not working properly.
Refuse to present special fare card to police officer or transit employee.
Straddle a bicycle, wear in-line or roller skates, stand on a skateboard or ride a scooter.
Move between end doors of a subway car whether or not train is in motion, except in an emergency or when directed by police officer or conductor
Place one's foot on the seat of a subway, bus, or platform bench; occupy more than one seat or place bags on an empty seat when doing so would interfere with transit operations or the comfort of other customers

Our New York City Council is more interested in firing Karl Rove or giving advice on Iraq, than taking on terrorists, it is good to see the MTA is right in step with more useless actions.

It has been almost 6 months since terrorists hit the London Underground and New York's Transit Authority is worried about customers moving between cars and taking more than one seat. Personally I'd give $10 to see someone try and wear in-line skates on the subway and not fall on their butts. Do terrorists wear roller skates?
