There's at least two more of these.  I can't believe this is the ad campaign that the city of Los Angeles chose to promote good manners on subways and busses!

Unfortunately, these ads went 20 million dollars over budget.

Here's an article from AdWeek on them:

Got to hand it to LA... most Public Service Announcements are boring and ignored. These got people talking and thinking. Fascinating

Super cute enforcers might invite copycat violators.   I think the zapping might need approval by CA Air Resources Board

Hmmm... they must have changed it after I read it. I hadn't even heard of AdWeek before finding this via Google.

Maybe it was getting enough hits for them to smell a buck to be made.

I remember the free and open early days of the Net well enough to detest this commercialization of information.

I couldn't get the Adweek either, but there are lots of articles about this ad campaign, many repeating the same points.  I'm actually amazed we all missed it last year.  Anyway, here's a good one from London's Observer:
