Last month, Metro decided not to pull bus service from Southeast neighborhoods where rock-throwers attack buses, despite the apocalyptic nature of the whole thing. Now the Post‘s Dr. Gridlock reports that the transity agency’s trying a new tactic: asking nicely.

“Throwing rocks at buses or cars is not just a prank” the flyer reads. “It’s a dangerous crime.”

Is smashing bus windows with rocks even that much of a prank? Either way, the flyer goes on to urge parents to remind their children not to attack buses with stones.

If you’re still considering tossing a few stones at the W6 bus, the flyer has other ideas:  “Think twice and just don’t do it!”
