Hefty fine for eating ice cream

A girl has been fined Ft 16,000 on a BKK bus for eating an ice cream and the story has spread on Facebook.

News website 24 asked the BKK for comment and the BKK said the fine was justified since it is forbidden to eat ice cream, to eat or drink, and to travel with unpackaged food and drink on its vehicles, the metro network, suburban railways and cogwheel services, under current regulations.

The girl, who had a valid monthly pass, did not comment.
