A place to vent your BART experience

Okay, so stick with me here, I like the coincidence, synchronicity or however you want to categorize it.
I moved to the area, and became a frequent BART rider. I realize that there were certain rules that everyone needed to follow like no smoking, giving up seats by the door for those who need it etc.
The rule about eating I figure is a litter, and consequently a hygiene and health issue. Of course, if one is responsible, there's no reason we shouldn't be allowed to eat as long as we pick up after ourselves. I thought it's a rule simply because a few lame people ruin it for everyone.
Now without a subtle segue, September 11, 2001 has changed our freedom (real freedom, not George W. Bush religious morals/trademarked greedom) and we've had to adhere to restrictions on freedoms because a few assholes. This is a more violent, ignorant and spiteful version of the same idea filled with malice. Now we've given up more liberties more profound and restrictive due to only a few.

during certain days of the week I start at Dublin Pleasanton station and I feel bad for the next two stops. The reason, because the cars are practically full before it leaves. It's unbelievable but yes, I would not want to be the next few stops because it will be standing room only.
