As a frequent user of public buses and the Dubai Metro, Gulf News reader Ramshid Hashim said he often came across commuters misusing public facilities. He took this photograph when travelling from Dubai Silicon Oasis to the Rashidiya Metro Station.
The reader said: “Every time I commute, I see at least two or three passengers in the bus who think it is acceptable to put their feet up on vacant seats. This is a disgusting habit and they should behave appropriately! Although I have seen cameras in some public buses, I have never seen anyone being fined for this bad habit. Perhaps bus drivers could keep an eye on passengers and stop them from this misuse.”
