Call Albany to Toughen Assault Protections

Published by Vincent Modafferi on

A coalition of Transit Unions want the politicians in Albany to make spitting, shoving, kicking, and other physical contact against transit workers, a crime. Right now, these vile and unacceptable acts are only considered violations — like a parking ticket.

We can change that.   Tell your state Senator and Assembly Member to support legislation making physical contact with a transit worker — including spitting — a misdemeanor crime: aggravated harassment, punishable by up to a year in jail. It just takes a minute. Call them. Email them. Give them a piece of your mind.
