Smoochers, Talkers, Eaters Fined On Public Transit

Posted: Updated:

If you want to sneak a smooch in on public, think again. It could cost you.

Leaders in Austria's capital agreed to fine couples caught kissing on-board trains.

That's not the only thing that could have you paying up. People could also be fines for eating smelly food or talking too loudly on cell phones.

Wiener Linien is the company that runs the city's transport network. The company reports it has been overwhelmed with complaints from passengers opposed to such displays of public affection.

Transportation officials decided to act after a series of odd incidents. They say there's been increase in naked passengers. One couple had sex on a train; another passenger brought a horse on-board.

Those kissing fines run about $65. Linien created a special 'kissing zone. There, couples using the station are given 20 minutes to indulge their amorous feelings toward each other.
