Do you support banning eating on the subway?

Passengers will be banned from eating on Shanghai subway trains starting next year, though they are still allowed to eat in the stations, according to a new rule released by Shanghai's transport authority. Advocates said the policy will improve the carriage environment for commuters. However, some argue there’s good reason to eat on the train, more likely if an elderly passenger wants to drink water.
