MTA does not enforce anything - its a free for all down there
WTF?? Why is this allowed? This is just wrong, and this person should have been removed from the subway and given a fine.What happens if he loses control of this vehicle on the subway steps at some point and causes serious injury to someone?This city is truly going to hell on the fast track.
I don't mind the scooter. I do mind two out of four passengers NOT wearing masks correctly.
Chill out boomers ; people take precautions before doing these things .
@5:28pm: Oh, yeah, "people take precautions before doing these things" - best laugh of my day! They take no precautions AND they don't give a shit; that's b/c they're all "special."PS: Chill out yourself, Gen Z! Maybe you'll get a gummy bear tomorrow if you're good.
NYPD do not enforce anything lots of people do not wear masks
Boomers forget the 60s 70s&80s of nyc how horrible that was , now theirs more surveillance then ever nobody doesn’t nothing funky on the train unless they are a druggy or really really dumb .
I've never in my life seen NYTP enforce any code violations in the subway. Carrying on furniture, beds, ladders, giant trash bags full of rubbish, bikes, animals, snakes, rodents, peeing, pooping, vomiting, smoking weed. Anything gores down there.
I've written elected officials and the transit police about the proliferation of e-bikes and scooters in the subway as e-batteries in an enclosed underground train seems like a tragedy waiting to happen. That's probably what it will take to get the city start enforcing what I believe is a condition in violation of city code.
This guy is a worker, doing a hard, low paying job. I would be willing to bet he has a good reason (mechanical issues or something) for having his scooter on the subway, and as long as he is not hurting anyone, I have no problem with it. Now that dope with her mask below her nose in those close quarters? Her, I have a problem with.
Thank You! Every once in a while, someone has something reasonable to say in these comments. Can’t we all just assume the best in people?!?
@8:16am: "Boomers forget" ... so, tell me, how many boomers do you personally know, and are they are all amnesiacs or in full dementia?And you say "nobody doesn’t nothing funky on the train"! Wow, have you BEEN in the subway lately?!I'm a boomer & I have VIVID memories of exactly what it was like 50 years ago. Younger people today, who are dependent on their cell phones, would never have been able to hack it back then! I used to ride the subway, alone, as a young woman at 11pm on weeknights to visit my boyfriend who lived on West 94th Street. I remember exactly how the trains were, and they were NEVER like they are now.NOW I'm afraid to be on the subway, b/c the subways have far more than their share of crazies, lazies, and people who are just self-involved jerks. And now, most people are so absorbed in their phone that if you needed help you'd be out of luck most of the time.In the 1970's, people were not randomly pushing strangers off the platform onto the tracks in the now-routine way we seeing today.I'd gladly take the NYC (all of it!) of 1970 over today.
So tired of the ageism and lack of respect snark, whatever the age. How are the poor and regular folks supposed to get around? Have no problem with furniture and e bikes as long as they try to watch out for others, people have their reasons. The people without masks or wearing them incorrectly? Not so much. And folks, have to admit, @1:32pm has a point, I cannot see many of the newer residents being able to deal with what it was like on the subways, much less the streets, in the 70s and 80s.
