Tasers might work just as well. Can you stop attacking the crews, please?

NJ Transit’s Angry Riders Prompt Crew Training to Stem Assaults

A soaring number of physical assaults on New Jersey Transit employees have led the agency to step up anti-violence training as bus and train riders vent about crowding and cancellations.

Twenty-seven personnel have reported assaults either on board trains or on NJ Transit rail property from January through July, according to Federal Railroad Administration data. That’s four more than for calendar years 2016-2018 combined. Assault data for bus workers weren’t immediately available.[/url]
