A month ago I posted a story about how I was given a ticket on the NYC subway. It was allegedly for taking up more than one seat (even though it was 2am on a Thursday). The whole incident was ridiculous, including what I would consider harrassment on the part of the officer involved.
Well yesterday I had the great fortune of going to the Transit Adjudication Board to contest the ticket. After two hours of waiting, I spoke to a very sympathetic woman who dismissed the ticket. Also, a colleague of mine who happens to be on NYC Transit Riders Council was outraged enough to bring the story to the chief of the council, who is talking to the Chief of Police about the incident. I’m just happy it’s all over.
