Paris Metro drivers have to skip stations as crack dealers take over platforms – unionTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) -The levels of drug-related crime in parts of the Paris Metro have seemingly spiralled so out-of-control that train drivers are refusing to stop at certain stations.

The Unsa RATP union, which represents the Paris Metro and bus network, has sent a letter to Gerard Collomb, the French Minister of the Interior, as well as Anne Hidalgo, the mayor of Paris and Valerie Pecresse, the President of the Regional Council of Île-de-France, saying that certain metro stations, particularly on lines 12 and 4 in the north-east, were being used by drug dealers as a base and as a result, drug-related crime and violence has been on the rise.

In a joint statement with the group SOS Users, the union said dealers and their loitering customers were aggressive and often dangerous.
