No Kissing sign up at British train stationFebruary 19th, 2009 - 2:03 pm ICT by Amrit Rashmisrisethi
At a British train station, a sign board is up, having the “no kissing” sign to stop lovers going full steam ahead with their over-amorous farewells.
Commuters have been told: if you want to get up to that kind of business, do it in the car park.
The sign starts at the drop-off point at Warrington Bank Quay station in the town of Warrington, between Liverpool and Manchester in northwest England.
A similar sign, this time permitting kissing, has been erected elsewhere in a zone where smooching is considered tolerable. ‘We have not banned kissing in the station,’ said a spokesman for operators Virgin Rail.
‘But we have put the sign up at the drop-off point because it is not a very big area and it often gets busy with lots of traffic. The sign is a light-hearted way of getting people to move on quickly. If people wish to spend a little more time with their loved ones before they leave, then they should park in the short-stay car park nearby.’
The busy station links the town to major cities London, Birmingham, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Liverpool and Manchester.
