'Manspreading' on the New York City subway.

Men who ride the New York City subway will soon be seeing signs asking them to "stop the spread." As in: Stop spreading your legs so wide when you sit down on the subway, dude. You’re taking up way too much space. 

It's part of a campaign that goes after all kinds of rude behavior on public transit. Jeannie Yandel asked Sound Transit spokesman Bruce Gray whether we face a similar problem in the Puget Sound region.
