If the new by-law is passed and the merger (MTR and KCR of Hong Kong) is successful it would affect all passengers on the merged MTR and KCR of Hong Kong (this would also include the Hong Kong Disneyland Resort Line.)A controversial proposal that could see people jailed for up to six months for using foul language on trains could derail government plans to get the bill merging the two railway companies passed by the Legislative Council before the current session ends in July.
In a move that caught many legislators by surprise, proposed by-laws for the new unified KCRC and MTRC lines include a suggestion that the penalty for the use of foul language be increased from HK$2,000 to HK$5,000 plus six months' imprisonment.
The fine for loitering, busking or transporting pets would also be increased from HK$2,000 to HK$5,000 plus three months in jail.
There would also be penalty for those who cut lines etc.
more discipline in Hong Kong?
