MBTA moves to end pram 'n' cram
The Herald reports the T is readying a policy that would require parents to fold their strollers while on trains.
MBTA GM Richard Davey: "There are some that are like SUVs."
Carla, mother of two, however, is aghast:
On busy train, parent should stand holding baby in 1 hand, stoller in other, & not be able to hang on to anything? Unsafe.
The Outraged Liberal, meanwhile, says there's an even worse group of space hogs the T should combat: Backpackers.
[W]omen and men with small children have one thing urban backpackers lack -- the sense to know they are taking up extra space. Say something to a toddler toter and you will get an attempt at accommodation. Say something to a backpacker and you will likely get a lot of lip.
