Those running our public 'transport system' never seem to tire of deluging passengers with messages.
Here's a sample from my varied modes of transport this morning...
"Owing to the late running of the service in front, this tram will be terminating at the next stop." Oh, thanks.
"Please stand well back from the yellow line when the train enters the platform."
"This is your guard speaking. If you see anything suspicious please tell me or a member of the on-board staff. If you require my assistance, I can be found at the centre of this eight-car train."
"On alighting from this service, please take care to mind the gap between the train and the platform."
"Please ensure you have all your belongings with you when you leave the train."
"Passengers using Oyster Pre-Pay please ensure you touch in and touch out or you will be charged the full price fare for your journey."
"Oyster Pre-Pay is not valid on this service."
"Please do not give money to beggers operating at this station. South West Trains gives a donation to various charities on your behalf."
"Due to signal failure, severe delays are occuring on the Uxbridge branch of the Metropolitan Line."
"Any unattended articles will be removed and could be destroyed."
"For reasons of safety, bicycles are not allowed on this service."
"Please move right down inside the carriage."
"Flash photography is not permitted on the Underground."
"Thank you for travelling with South West Trains."
