Local: BART Board drops liquor ads
San Francisco: Trains in the San Francisco Bay Area's BART commuter system won't be carrying alcohol ads after all. The system's board of directors reversed its earlier decision to allow the ads, following widespread community protests led by the Marin Institute, an alcohol industry watchdog. BART director Gail Murray of Contra Costa County led the opposition on the board, citing the effect of alcohol ads on underage riders. Source. Earlier blog item.
