    I’m glad that they started to check Muni in my area.

    “Ingleside Station, ground zero of the Police Department’s experimental reform efforts”

    I like reading that. If you think you have seen the worst in fare cheating in the city, you have not seen what’s going on in Ingleside.

    Yet – the operation was 5 1/2 hours and they issued **22** citations? In that time there must be several hundred times more fare cheats than that!

    Still… kudos.
