Porn video of BART train sex tests agency’s new anti-indecency law

Well, this is one way to get back at BART for the recent strike. And, yes, the video indeed can be found on YouTube.

Story by colleague Mike Rosenberg:

An amateur pornography video shot on a moving BART train has quickly gone viral, placing a quick and high-profile test on the agency’s new law designed to root out unruly and indecent passengers.

Since being uploaded to the Web on Thursday, the one-minute cellphone video has been flying around social media and has already attracted more than 800,000 views — or four times the number of people who ride BART around the Bay Area each day.

The video shows a man and woman engaging in sexual intercourse in the back of a BART train while the train travels through a tunnel. A passenger across the aisle apparently used his cellphone to film the incident.

“Lewd activity is not only highly inappropriate on BART, it is illegal. It can and will get you banned from the entire system,” BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost said Friday. “Do yourself and the families who ride BART a favor and keep it in the bedroom.”

The video comes just two months after BART began enforcing a highly publicized new state law that gives the agency power to permanently or temporarily ban riders caught in a range of infractions, varying from assault to urinating on board.

Luna Salaver, a BART spokeswoman, said the rail line’s police force is reviewing the video.
