Off Their Rockers?

Tubeworker has had cause to comment on many previous occasions about management's somewhat eccentric schemes for reducing SPADs. But this one really takes the biscuit ... or some form of confectionary anyway.

Bakerloo management had some sticks of rock produced, with 'Bakerloo' running through them, and a nice reminder message about SPADs on the wrapper. Yes, really.

Of course, they then had to remind drivers not to actually eat them in the cab, as it might cause a sugar rush and ruin their concentration, thus causing ... SPADs. So their latest gimmick will remind you to not drive through a red, but only when you're not actually driving a train.

Apparently, managers actually get paid for coming up with nonsense like this. More than we do, in fact.
