Muni to add surveillance cameras in train cabs

To enforce the newly adopted state ban on cell phone use on the job, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (CA) will install surveillance cameras to keep an eye on its rail operators. The California Public Utilities Commission approved a regulation last week that prohibits rail transit operators from using personal cell phones and other electronic communications devices while on the job. “The CPUC is sending a clear message to operators tempted by the attraction of cell phone use: It’s not worth it. You will be held accountable,” said commissioner Mike Florio. To ensure accountability, the ruling is the first in the nation to require state rail systems to install video cameras in the train operator’s cab. Link to full story in San Francisco Chronicle.
