The MTA had predicted that the new subway rules started this year would result in a much higher rate of summons issued. As a matter of fact, when the new rules were implemented, many straphangers were pissed! The expected that the MTA Police would be handing out fines left and right.
Well, the complete opposite occurred. Overall, the summons rates are lower in just about all categories. Overall, the rates are lower year to date.
Strangely, tickets for “unauthorized animals” hit a high note. What the hell is that? And riding between cars, but SUBWAYblogger thinks that has mostly to do with the new rules that prohibit walking between cars when the train is moving.
