BANNED FOR TAKING PHOTOS -- Carlos Miller "We were permanently banned from the Miami-Dade Metrorail for taking photos.
We had planned to ride the Metrorail through three stations to see if anybody would try to stop us from taking pictures of the trains.We didnít even make it inside the first station. By the time it was over, three hours after a security guard told us it was against the law to take pictures in the parking lot of the Douglas Road Metro Station in Miami, a 50 State Security Captain had banned us for life from ever setting foot on the Metrorail again."
