BART will limit wireless shutdowns

Two weeks after a controversial decision to shut down wireless access to quell a planned demonstration, Bay Area Rapid Transit (CA) directors agreed to limit the tactic to situations when public safety is endangered. “I think we reached a consensus that it should only be used in an extreme case where the public is imminently at risk,” said board president Bob Franklin at a special board meeting on Wednesday. The consensus was not a formal policy vote, given the state’s open meeting laws; directors will bring a more detailed proposal back to a public meeting within a month.
