You know, I’ve seen NYC subway operators letting family members and kids into their compartments, but never thought much of it. Until this story came out in the Daily News.
A subway rider says he got the shock of his life when he peered into the cab and saw a kid behind the controls alongside the driver.
“I saw him driving. He couldn’t have been more than 8 or 9,” said Jules Cattie, 41. “That has to be the craziest thing I’ve ever seen.”
Cattie, a lawyer who lives on the East Side, said he spotted the child after he got into the front car of a Lexington Ave. express train Sunday.
“I was just in shock,” he said. “I thought, ‘This is really dangerous.'”
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority yesterday said it has launched “a vigorous and thorough investigation” into the charge.
It would be a blatant violation of work rules if the allegation were true.
A violation of the rules? You don’t says? Thank god there’s a rule for that.
The snitch–and I think we need more snitches in this city–took a photo as well.
