As thefts remain high on the trains, buses and platforms, the CTA has stepped up its efforts to educate passengers to be more alert, and pay closer attention to their surroundings. These safety posted have been hung on rail cars and buses:
Also, Chicago Police last month were distributing safety flyers at community policing meetings with security tips about keeping your belongings safe and staying “alert and awake.” That part about staying awake is important. See my post about sleeping guys having their wallets cut out of their pants.
The flyer also warns against prohibited activities, such as harassment, loud playing of any type of audio device, gambling, soliciting and selling. I particularly like this part of the flyer.
