Policing

During traffic hour the Bart is often packed. But I'd rather take the Bart going to the city of San Francisco than driving through the traffic on the freeway any day. Plus, riding the Bart allows me to be in the presence of people and observe their behaviors.

I was riding the Bart the other day and witnessed an exchange that bothered me. A Caucasian Lady was getting on the Bart with her bike, but an Asian gentleman stopped her. He stated that no bike should be in the Bart during rush hours. It says so on the sign, he pointed at the wall. The lady said there's room for her and the bike. Another Caucasian lady told the lady to just get on. She got on. The gentleman's face was contorted by her defiant. As the Bart came to a stop at the next station, the gentleman pulled out his IPhone and took a picture of the lady with the bike like a Secret Service agent. There's a hint of a smile on his face, a I'll teach you to defy me satisfaction.

I took a deep breath and let it out.

You know, I've been in that situation before when I was riding the public conveyance (skytrain here in vancouver). There's a certain time where bikes are not allowed on the skytrain, and certain stops where they are not allowed to get on / off. These are for safety concerns and probably also time constraints as it gets quite cramped during rush hours and such.

The way I see it, the lady should have gotten off when told of the rules - she was obviously ignorant of the rules, but since she was told, and was inconveniencing someone, she should have really removed her bike from the BART.
