BART police enforce stretching ban at stations

By

SAN FRANCISCO — Bay Area Rapid Transit police have started enforcing a ban on sleeping, lying or sitting with legs stretched out at a busy downtown San Francisco station.

Agency officials tell the San Francisco Chronicle (http://bit.ly/1losCep ) the campaign at the Powell Street station is intended to ensure that stations can be quickly evacuated in an emergency, and insist they’re not targeting the homeless.

BART’s deputy police chief, Jeffry Jennings, says state law requires BART to be able to evacuate stations promptly. He said a growing number of people are sleeping, lying down or sitting with their legs extended in downtown stations with long corridors.

Officers plan to enforce the ordinance at all BART stations.

    They expect to enforce squatting when they can not even enforce defecation on the escalators.
