In the five months since a horrific Green Line crash killed a trolley operator and injured several passengers, nine MBTA drivers have been slapped with suspensions for texting or talking on cell phones while operating their vehicles, the Herald has learned.
Since May 28, eight bus drivers and one subway operator have received suspensions ranging from three days to 10 days - just short of termination, statistics show.

A coincidence? I think not!
From the Boston Herald article:
I've noticed on at least two different commuter rail trains that the conductors/engineers have recently removed the heavy cardboard ads from the ad display frames and duct-taped them over the door windows to keep people from seeing in to where they "drive" the train.
Far be it from me to suggest they might be trying to frustrate prying eyes.
