The men and women who drive the New York City subway trains for the MTA don't have an easy job. The monotony of spending hours in underground tunnels could lull you into a trance. The MTA has a remedy for this called the point and call rule.

The rule requires that at each stop the conductor point out the window at a zebra-striped band. It's a way to ensure they are alert. (New Yorkers, go look for it the next time you're in a subway station.)
