San Francisco commuters received an unexpected announcement from their train conductors this week, with transit employees warning their riders to be on the lookout for used hypodermic needles before they sit down.

“Conductors there reportedly have taken to the trains’ PA systems to warn riders about hypodermic needles being left on seats by transient drug users as San Francisco fights an uphill battle to clean up thousands of syringes discarded each month all over the city,” writes Fox News.

For Pete’s sake contracting hepatitis is no laughing matter. And there is no vaccination to prevent Hepatitis C.
