WASHINGTON - Consuming alcohol while traveling on a Metro bus or train is the most common way to get a ticket from the system's transit police.
The Washington Post reports ( http://wapo.st/wVDFcz) Sunday that 97 percent of the roughly 1,200 tickets Metro Transit Police issued from January through October 2011 were for alcohol violations.
Most of the alcohol-related tickets, 58 percent, were issued at Metro stations, while 36 percent were issued at bus stops or on buses. It isn't a violation to carry food or drink on a train or bus, but eating or drinking anything can result in a ticket of up to $100.
