I got on the Red Line at the 7th and Figueroa station last night to
find two teenage boys with skateboards at one end of the car. They
called out an odd warning for all of us to keep our feet out of the
aisle. "This is a dangerous car," they warned. We soon found out the
reason. One of the boys was sitting astride his skateboard and as we
left the station, the forward motion sent him shooting down the length
of the car.

He did the same thing when the car came to a stop, shooting back to the
front. This continued at each stop until the boy hit someone, thus
ending the game until they got to Union Station.
