Recently, the new rules of the Beijing subways have been implemented. Eating and drinking on metros are prohibited and somebody who breaks the rule will face a serious punishment. In fact, besides Beijing, in a lot of Chinese cities including Shanghai, Nanjing, Xiamen and Xi’an, eating and drinking on metro lines are not allowed.

Most people support the rule and think it should be implemented all over the country. They believe that metro is a public space, and eating or drinking on metros will affect others greatly. Especially in crowded train, the smell of food will be hard to stand. What’s more, the rule against eating or drinking is very helpful to keep metros clean.

However, some people don’t agree with that and they argue that it is too rigid to prohibit all the people to drink and eat on metros. For many commuters of large cities who face commutes for more than an hour and some weak or sick people, timely supplement of some food or water is very necessary.

As far as I’m concerned, it is necessary to prohibited to eat huge meals but should not be so strict with water. The rules should be made more carefully and considerately. What’s your opinion about that?
