Street Art Etiquette

Here’s a great new street art campaign in the New York Subways which addresses one of my great pet peeves, poor public transit etiquette…

The artist, Jay Shells, set about creating a series of official-looking instructional posters based on a survey of a hundred subway riders which he conducted in order to determine their greatest subway pet peeves. Here’s my question to you, dear readers. What public transit-related frustrations of yours would you like to see condemned in official-looking posters?

Mine would include “When entering a subway car, please do not suddenly slow down when you have gotten two feet inside. Other commuters will be entering behind you and they will also be looking for space in which to stand or sit.”

    Mine would be on exiting rather. Having the oncoming passengers wanting to enter before you exit doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. I feel like I am playing Red Rover at the Lionel Groulx metro during the afternoon hours. I will admit that the opposition is often 12 to 16 years olds, but that is not always to case. And what better time to learn proper metro etiquette than then.
