Mayor Adams Calls For Crackdown On Subway Surfing Videos

Mayor Adams and the MTA want social media companies to remove subway surfing videos from their platforms.

“I don't think that we have properly analyzed what social media is doing to us in general, specifically to our young people,” Mayor Adams said.

He said subway surfing videos in New York City are up about 500 percent. Earlier this week, a 15-year-old riding on top of a “J” train fell and was killed.

“Some of these sites, they're more addictive than drugs. People can't get off them. And you start duplicating this behavior,” Adams said.
