Don’t Block the Box

Are you annoyed that annoying tourists others continue to stand in the Metrorail car doors during rush hour? Do you want them to know the door hogs are a public egress hazard?

How about this idea from Life Outta Context? To quote ‘em:

Borrowing from New York’s plan to reduce intersection gridlock, the Metro should institute a “Don’t Block the Box” campaign.

Mark off subway car exits in bright and bold yellow. Give the announcer a new script that includes the admonishment DON’T BLOCK THE BOX said in her best uncompromising tone (more like your middle school vice principal).

Amen, brother. Play on drummer!
