Humorous signs give boost to NYC subway conductors

Posted on November 6, 2013

NEW YORK CITY — To ensure that New York City subway drivers are alert, they are required at each stop to point out the window at a zebra-striped band. This point and call rule, as it is called, inspired Yosef Lerner to create a video to tell the story of "The New York Subway Signs Experiment."

In the video, Lerner's colleague hold humorous signs for the conductors to read when they stop and point at the band.

The video drew nearly one million views in the first four days of its posting on YouTube and multiple messages of thanks from Metropolitan Transportation Authority employees, according to an AOL Jobs report.
