NY1: Top Stories:

If you like to drink your morning coffee on the subway or stretch out on the seats, beware - that kind of behavior could soon cost you.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority board voted Thursday in favor of tighter restrictions on behaviors that many New Yorkers see and do every day on the subway.

"If you're walking around with a steaming hot coffee on the 5 or the 4 train at 8:30 a.m., I would hope to hell the cop would give you a summons because you have no right to do that. It's not right and it's not courteous to your fellow passengers," said MTA Chairman Peter Kalikow.
