Also, if you could jump down on the tracks and pick up all the garbage you see, that would be a great help, too.

Unwilling to spend real money (we're getting around to it!) on real subway safety measures, the laughably mismanaged MTA calls on its overpaying customers to do its work for them. Also, their lawyers probably see this ad campaign as a first line of defense against the lawsuits to come when nobody sees the something on a 6 train that blows Grand Central Station the hell up.

1. The MTA. Very Anal.

The MTA fails at everything except failure itself. Of that, it is king!

16 million eyes, 1/8 of which need assistance to see correctly. Terror lurks on the bridge of a nose.

Next they may post individual close-ups of eyes just above the seats to give the impression that you are constantly being observed by blank stares.

It could prevent would be criminals and guilt trip the purse snatcher as he runs into the empty car ahead and finds a mob of necessarily divers, blank stares peering on him with condemnation.

The entire NY transit system is redeemed!

When I saw this, I started wondering why didn't show a veiled face as well. Would've been super politically correct.

Here in Ottawa, our local transpo uses the same slogan (they even go as far as to acknowledge that they stole it from NYC) except "If you see something, say something" is illustrated with two penguins in Bermuda shorts.

This is all to say... it could be worse.

We have the same slogan ("if you see something, say something") in Chicago. The eyes are creepy, but I'm all for stepping up to the plate and saying something. Too many people "mind their own business." I've taken a report of a woman who was beaten while people watched because no one wanted to step in. Grow some balls people.
