NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The union representing transit workers wants them to slow down the speed of subway trains as they enter stations, and they’re taking action, graphically.
The chalk outline of a person on the tracks and the words “Slow Down Over Your Dead Body” are now part of the campaign and clearly meant for attention.
The campaign comes in the wake of two recent subway track deaths.
Paul, a man who was waiting for an early morning 1 train, had plenty to give.
“They’re just doing their job and they’re keeping us safe,” he told WCBS 880 reporter Alex Silverman.
His train’s motorman didn’t care to follow the Transport Workers Union order to slow down and honk on the way in.
