Don't even have basic human rights to drink water...that's crazy
What we are discussing now isn't about the new on-the-spot fines. That is just the spark that has ignited the reason for us to question the rules and regulations of the use of the MRT that has been implemented a long time ago. Indeed, from the responses to the thread, we can see that many of us are confused and frustrated about the inflexibility of regulations which, by following to the letter, will give us a fine of between S$30 and S$500 should we disobey the rules due to our needs.

*Staff slaps commuter's head with a big fine*
When they have fines against people who sit, there will be an outcry here on Clubsnap again.
I really believe that barring us from drinking plain water is really against our rights within the country. We should be able to do anything unless it is dangerous to ourselves and/or other people, or inconveniences other people. The ban of chewing gum, for example, solved a high percentage of problems related to it (stuck lift/train doors for example) and now we're okay with it. Chewing gum isn't a basic necessity. Plain water is.

are we allow to swallow our saliva on the MRT trains?
are we allow to perspire on the MRT trains ?
or we have to carry a pail to catch the droplets of liquid to avoid wetting the seats and floor ?
