San Francisco takes aim at ‘manspreading’!


manspreadFiled under, only in California!

San Francisco – Men (or women) with problematically wide stances (manspreading) could face hefty fines after the San Francisco transit board approved a strict “one ticket, one seat” policy. Los Angeles transit officials will consider a similar measure in the coming months.

Offenders will be fined $100 for the first violation, $200 for a second offense within a 12-month period, and $500 for each repeat violation within five years. It is unclear just how the new rule will be enforced, however. When asked if the policy would be expanded to include ‘womenspreading’, the all male board indicated that that situation would not be considered so much a problem….. ahem…
