Los Angeles metro riders face $75 'manspreading' fine

Manspreading isn’t just annoying. Now it could cost offenders a lot of cash.

There’s a new “metro manners” campaign in Los Angeles and it comes with hefty fines of up to $75 dollars. 

It’s all part of a recent enforcement surge.

As CBS LA reports, more than 3,000 people have received fines for various infractions with more than 2,000 having actually been ejected.

Manspreading isn’t the only thing that can cost offenders cash. Eating, drinking, smoking and vaping are also on the list.

Other offenses include: placing chewing gum on seats, occupying more than one seat, blocking a door, disturbing others and playing loud music.

Riders who commit third, fourth and fifth offenses could be banned for 30-90 days.

It’s not just thoughtful to be courteous to your fellow metro riders, it may also save you a lot of trouble from the authorities.
