A passenger was seen smoking inside a train on the MTR Kwun Tong Line, defying rules and prompting other passengers to cover their noses and stay away from the man, Apple Daily reports.

 

According to a passenger who boarded the Yau Ma Tei-bound train at Yau Tong, the incident took place at around 6 p.m. on Saturday. She saw a man in his 30s, who was wearing a cap, lighting up a cigarette inside the train compartment. Other passengers sounded the emergency alarm to alert the train operator.

 

Two MTR staff soon showed up and gave the man a verbal warning. The man then put out his cigarette. However, as soon as the MTR train left the station, the man lit up another cigarette. Apparently feeling very much at home, the passenger also turned on his audio equipment and played music loudly as he drank from a can of beer.

 

When some passengers complained, the man shouted: “This is Hong Kong, I’m free to do whatever I want!” When the train arrived at the Wong Tai Sin station, several MTR staff boarded the train, but the man had dropped his cigarette butt into the platform gap and left.

 

The MTR Corporation said a verbal warning was issued to a passenger who had violated regulations. However, the rail operator said they didn’t spot anyone smoking when the train reached Wong Tai Sin station.

Can't stand these people. No manners at all. Give them a fine and they will realize their mistake!

Instead of MTR staff, maybe it should have security or something. People will do things with full disregard of the rules when they know they can get away with it.

That guy sure has mental issues, but sadly, a lot of young people in the west have this mentality of entitlement.

The man who caused this incident really angered me ... he had no regard for other passengers' safety and train regulations. :76:

Drinking beer, playing music loudly, and smoking cigarettes are not permissible form of manners and behaviors for passengers while boarding a train.

that is not good. the man shouldn't even allow to eat or drink even smoking on the train. he should arrested by MTR staff and hand over to the police to deal with this.
