New York transit workers spat upon by angry passengers at greater rate 

New York City bus and subway workers were spat upon by irate passengers 145 times so far this year — about 14 times a month, which is up from the 139 salivary assaults during 2010, according to transit statistics. NYC police have become so concerned that they are looking at using DNA to identify and prosecute transit expectorators. Boston is already doing this, and similar programs in England have led to successful prosecutions.
