Eating in bus still prohibited by the law?

I was taking bus 15 one day. The bus is pretty new as evident from the interior. As I looked around cabin, I felt that something was missing. After thinking for a while, it came to my mind that the “No eating or drinking” sign is not found in the bus. The activities prohibited by the law are shown in the signboard above.

I’ve also dropped an email to SBS Transit to enquire if eating or drinking in the bus is still prohibited by the law. However, I have yet to receive a reply. When it comes to such issue, my take is that a lot have to come from self-moderation of the riders. I believe it is ok for a passenger to take occasional sip of water on the bus as some journeys could be long and there may be traffic jams along the journey. However, it is not right for someone to munch on a hamburger or French fries during the journey. Such a person is blatantly trying to challenge the law and I have encountered such passengers.

Whether or not eating or drinking on the bus is still prohibited by the law, it is the social responsibility of every passenger to keep the public transport clean.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

It is sad to say, the people here are not "civic minded readiness". Take Japan for example, they allow drinks and food on board, but I have not seen any wrappers or cups been throw around in the train or slipped in between seat or any available gaps. Commuters there prastice self discipline to switch their mobile phones to silent mode when on board and speak softly on the phone or listen to music softly thru their earphones in order not to disturb other commuters. But here is totally different scenario.
