How do you handle food on MUNI? Technically it's not allowed but everyone kind of does it.
It's basically ignored. We've had good luck with cooperation for the most part. We tell the staff to let the patron know to put it away until after they get out, for safety and sanitary purposes and advise (that) the patron "may be" cited (but they are) generally not. We learned long ago, the courts dismissed these citations right away.
It may change once the DPT hearing process is in full swing - MAYBE.
DPT is supposed to start taking over the ajudication of our citations. DPT's hearing office is on 11th at Howard and will be moved to 11 South Van Ness - if not already there (it's been under construction for awhile).
