Looks like those crowded NYC subways and those awful delays are finally starting to catch up to the bleak reality New Yorkers now live. According to the betrothed mayor De Blasio, the NYPD has been instructed to begin breaking up subway cars that have lots of people on them (ordering people off at any given time.)
This comes as the MTA is experiencing severe delays; missing trains, some even shut down entirely as ridership continues to plummet. Making the comments to NY1, De Blasio reiterated that people will be fined for violating social distancing rules.
The PD is going to go out there, if they see any overcrowding they are going to split it up,’ de Blasio continued. ‘Pull people off the train, move them along into different cars, whatever it takes.
‘This is literally about protecting people’s lives. So anyone who sees it, call 311 and anyone who sees a crowded train, do not get on it.’
