Multilingual signs needed on Airport Rail Link to stop tourists urinating on trains: spokesman

Caption: It's clean - you can be confident of that!

 

A spokesman for the Airport Rail Link told the Thai media that there are toilets at every one of the line's stations. 

 

But they admitted that they were only in English and Thai along with other information.

 

The comment comes after social media went barmy on Tuesday when a Chinese woman was pictured squatting and relieving herself in a carriage near Lat Krabang station. 

 

Sanook columnist Komkrit Duangmanee spoke to the unnamed official yesterday who told him that maids at both the Suvanabhumi and Phayathai termini do cleaning as a matter of course. 

 

On this occasion a passenger had alerted staff to be ready for action at Suvarnabhumi due to the urine that was passing through the carriage. 

 

Appropriate steps were taken. 

 

He said there were toilets at every station but admitted that signage and information was only in Thai and English and not "other languages". 

 

The inference was clear - maybe Chinese should be used on the rail system for the benefit of visitors.

I guess you did not read it well enough, they wanted signs pointing to the Toilets at the stations that are now only in Thai and English.. they want to add Chinese.

symbols usually work with an arrow - airports seem to do fine 

 

Not sure you need a sign telling a human not to piss on a train

Read the article.. its not about humans not pissing in trains, its about better signs towards the toilets.

That is as multilingual as it gets. It's even understandable if you speak mandarin.

Says nothing about not being allowed to squat for a pee though, just no peeing into a hole in the floor when you have an erection, and beware of piles of s**t when you have haemorrhoids and are bending down to give a urinating man a blow job.

 

While they're at it, how about signs saying "do not eat the train" too?

 

But seriously, they are talking about better signage in the stations, so those dying for relief can go before they get on the train.  however, as some have already pointed out, it's not that hard to find out where the toilet is, even when you don't speak the language, and I get the feeling that, if the train is about to leave, many would just jump on it and hope for the best.
