Rat infestation poses a risk to the health of subway riders and workers.
Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA)
I just signed the following petition addressed to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA). It calls for them to adopt a system-wide rat eradication initiative immediately.
Rats are overrunning the subway system. They rule the platforms. They ride the trains.
This poses a risk to the health of subway riders and workers.
Controlling the rats doesn't take rocket science. It takes: - More trash removals from the stations; - patching up holes in walls and floors; - more platform trash cans; - tight-fitting lids for trash storage bins.
Join me! Sign the petition and tell the MTA to adopt a System-Wide Rat Eradication Initiative immediately.
Petition for a System-Wide Rat Eradication Initiative:
We, transit riders and transit workers of New York City, have seen a shocking increase in the amount of rats in the New York City subway. Subway rats can spread disease and pose serious health risks to riders and workers alike.
The time has come for action. We the undersigned call on the MTA to adopt a System-Wide Rat Eradication Initiative immediately.
