Sina reports that the city is going to hold a hearing in early July on subway regulations in Shanghai, specifically on issues of whether or not you can bring on food and drink, skateboads, or folding bicycles into the station. There is still too much confusion about what the rules are and how to implement them. The article mentions that if found in violation you could be charged 50-500 RMB fines. We don’t know of anyone that has been fined, though one person did get off with a warning after being caught with some kind of drink. Food is prohibited on the Guangzhou and Beijing subway lines. Any readers know of anyone that’s been fined? Would you supoort a ban on food? What about skateboards? How would you feel if you were a hungry skate rat? If you want to speak for skate rats, starved white-collar workers and other oppressed groups, you can do so by being applying to become one of the eight citizens that will be allowed to speak their minds at the hearing. The instructions are here.
