Hefty Fine For Eating On Budapest Bus
A girl has been fined Ft 16,000 for eating an ice cream on a BKK public transport bus.

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, however the story has been widely spread on Facebook - you can follow XpatLoop and enjoy more news via:
