Deliciously big brother-y, BART is now asking riders to snap photos of rider at its worst and post them them to BART's Facebook page. It's called "Rude Rider Hall of Shame," and we look forward to all of you ratting out your fellow passengers. And it's so easy too! On trains, platforms, or anywhere around the station, have your cellphone at the ready to capture images of one person taking up two seat spaces, people not standing to the right on an escalator, selfish backpack carriers, self-centered cyclists, and more.
We can't imagine what kind of educational effect this will have on riders; ultimately, this seems like it will simply generate interest to their page. But we congratulate BART for asking riders to spy and snitch on each other via public humiliation. Welcome to the dark side.
