I was doing my morning run up Massachusetts and the driver of an N-line bus honked at me 5 times while I ran on the sidewalk. I looked around, there were no other cars or people he could have been honking about. Gender-based street harassment by a District employee violates DC’s Human Rights Act, which prohibits discrimination of all kinds. I reported it to Councilmember Muriel Bowser, who chairs the Transportation Committee and sits on the WMATA board.
