Bill would ban alcohol ads on buses, subways

 

Subways and buses could soon become an alcohol-free ad zone if Assemblyman Felix Ortiz of Brooklyn gets his way.

 

Ortiz, the Sunset Park Democrat who authored the nation's first state law banning the use of hand-held cell phones by drivers, now is targeting public transit advertising beckoning riders to imbibe liquor, wine and beer.

 

It's not that Ortiz, chairman of the Assembly Committee on Alcoholism, is a modern-day prohibitionist. Far from it. In fact, he'd like to lower the legal drinking age in New York from 21 to 18.

Actually, I don't see what's wrong with alcohol ads. Wow, my E train has a Bud Light ad on it. So what??

Agreed. I understand the motive behind the ban, but I really don't think there will be any effect from it.
