Stupid DC Council and ACLU, most of the far evaders or Nogs that have no respect for anything! It is just going to encourage more fare evaders and more out of control Nogs on the Nog Hauler. Anywhere nice the Metro Trains run will be ruined by the Nogs. A repeat of Glen Echo Amusement Park, the Nogs killed it just like Wild World/Six Flags, lived here ALL my life and will never set foot in Six Flags or MGM in PG County.
At least now they can fire all the "Station Managers" that make between $150-$250k per year while they sleep on the job. No need for these clowns, this should offset the lost revenue.
The report comes as the D.C. Council voted 10-2 to decriminalize Metro fare evasion -- previously, violators faced possible jail time and a fine of up to $300, but now the penalty would be just a $50 fine. Critics say this will encourage more abuse of a system that is badly in need of paying riders, while proponents argue that the law disproportionately targets the poor and people of color.
