My goodness. The last thing they'd ever want to do is staff it with humans.

It was stupid design from the get-go.

One of those things bashed my 5 year old daughter really bad in DC. She's now terrified of them.

Although it is apparently working at all other BART stations.

They should put the point of entry that Disney parks employs. You buy a token and you have to scan your thumb print and insert your ticket for a single person turnstile to open.
It wont proceed if it detects more than two feet on the pad below.

These are even lower and therefore easier to jump than the BART ones.

Hmmm. Try riding the metro in Los Angeles. Its a den of homelessness. Everything they tell you not to do on the intercom is being done live at the moment you hear it.

They say don't play loud music. My girlfriend nudged me one morning during a conductor change, a guy was blasting his boombox in the front of the train, and the conductor was standing at the door waiting for it to open just "getting down" to the jams. Too funny.

Guys get on with these large stacks of containers with different items and go up and down the isles selling direct items starting with candies, then phone assessories, and then stuffed animals, ending with clothing items. While the intercom says not to do so.

They say keep your cellphones and iPads away for your safety, i guess people grab and go, but they have signs all over the trains that say Free Wi-fi is coming.

The train is an honor system, Gurards get on the trains once in a while to check if you have a valid ticket, of course none of the above mentioned do, and neither do the homeless on the trains who stand if from and give you there story and then go up and down the isles for money. One guy even removes his glass eye for all to see.

So when the guards do get on the train to check, the yell from the back door really loud for all to hear just before they get on, "TICKET CHECK" so all the people mentioned above can quickly exit from the front door of the train as not to get caught.

This is what you install when you're serious and not just fucking around to prove that "it's impossible to stop fare evasion":

If it could handcuff the scofflaws to the bars automatically until the heat arrives, it should be a best seller.

If stopped at 1/8 of the turn it will hold the perp as long as necessary.
