Re: Her agony of de-feet ! Runnerís outrage over ticket on empty train

Posted by (4) Lexington Av Exp on Sat Mar 3 15:41:16 2012, in response to Her agony of de-feet ! Runnerís outrage over ticket on empty train, posted by Gold_12TH on Sat Mar 3 15:14:57 2012.

NYCRR 1050.7
Disorderly Conduct
No person on or in any facility or conveyance shall:
10. (1) occupy more than one seat on a station, platform or conveyance when to do so would interfere or tend to interfere with the operation of the Authority's transit system or the comfort of other passengers;
(2) place his or her foot on a seat on a station, platform or conveyance;

(3) lie on the floor, platform, stairway, landing or conveyance; or
(4) block free movement on a station, stairway, platform or conveyance.

IF the summons is written for occupying more than one seat like the person said, it can technically be overturned actually, since the comfort of other passengers was a non-factor, and I doubt very much that her putting her foot on a seat would interfere with a train's operation.

But since she also placed her foot on a seat (which is not allowed as per paragraph 2), her results could vary.

She has some ground to fight the ticket, but IDK if the kangaroo court can overturn a techicality...
