A mon avis, pêter dans le métro de Washington, ça doit au moins valoir à l'auteur deux ans de Gantanamo et la peine de mort.
The ban on eating and drinking on the Washington subway makes it very plesant to ride, although it sometimes can be annoying if you are hungry. Overall it is a good thing. Two years in Guantanamo is a bit much, maybe they should just be forced to clean the Metro cars for a couple of days.
As far as I know, it is not forbidden to eat in the "metro" in Paris, but few people do it. You prefer to eat somewhere else...
C'est flippant.... Ou veulent-ils en venir ???
Quelle est la prochaine étape ? Interdiction de manger chez soi des aliments de plus de xxx calories entre 14h et 16h sous peine d'amendes ?
Impossibilité de chier plus d'une fois par jour pour "atteinte à l'équilibre ecologique mondial" ?
People eat a lot on the subway in New York City. It makes it a very unpleasant place. In DC, the Metro is usually relatively nice and clean.
Washington Metro is severely underfunded, raising fares like crazy, almost at capacity, and you want them to hire extra janitors to clean up your own mess you make? (Even with the ban, people will still occasionally spill ketchup, soda, French fries on the floor, imagine what it would be like they encouraged you to eat.) How would you like it if you invited a guest into your house and they made a mess, throwing food on the floor and refusing to pick it up?
The category to which this post belongs is misleading. Moreover, I hate using a dirty subway, in France and elsewhere...
Tiens, ça m'a rappelée une news que j'avais lue sur yahoo hier à propos du métro londonien:
Co-chairman of the W3C CSS Working Group, entrepreneur, software engineer, geek, father of two, polyglot, unashamed French, duck lover. Nah.
