“Our message is clear to anyone who’s considering subway surfing. Don’t do it.”

New York Police Department Chief of Transit Michael Kemper, regarding the social media trend of people climbing aboard the roof of moving subway cars. Four teens have died in the first six months of 2023, and two were seriously injured, as a result of the trend, compared to just five suspected subway surfing fatalities between 2018 and 2022. Officials have asked social media companies to remove videos of the stunts to discourage future incidents. (NPR — Aug. 17, 2023)
