Late for work again? Blame it on the kissers. In an effort to streamline pedestrian traffic flow, the Warrington Bank Quay Train Station in the UK has banned couples from kissing. The station’s managers say that the Goodbye Kiss delays other commuters and holds up traffic. The no kissing signs are part of a £650,000 station refurbishment.
Can You Get Fined Fior A Goodbye Kiss?
So what happens if you are caught locking lips in a no-kissing zone? Do you get slapped on the lips with a fine? Well… not exactly.
According to Colin Daniels, chief executive of the Warrington Chamber of Commerce, the signs are just a “bit of fun” and “they may seem frivolous but there is a serious message underneath.” The Warrington Station has become increasingly busy since introducing the Pendolino and Super Voyager trains. The signs are just a lighthearted way to keep pedestrian traffic moving along at the station.
Public Kissing Is Banned In Malaysia
If you’ve been in a Malaysian taxi recently, then you might have seen their signs banning kissing. Kissers beware! Unlike at the Warrington Station, the Malaysian signs are no joke. You will get fined in Malaysia.
