Gerald Starr, running for a Republican nomination to the House of Delegates from District 32, is calling for tighter security on the light rail system to keep criminals from using it as a way to enter Anne Arundel County.

Mr. Starr wants to eliminate the honor system, in which no one checks to see if passengers bought a ticket, and impose a ticket with a bar code that can be inserted into electronic scanners on board the trains.

Mr. Starr said the system will help stop joy-riding on the train and enable workers to keep an accurate account of the number of people who use the trains.

District 32 includes Linthicum, Glen Burnie and Severn.
