Indonesians to Spray Train Roof Riders

After failing to discourage people from riding the train on its roof, Indonesian authorities have developed a new tactic: spray 'em with color liquids!

Indonesian commuters riding on the roofs of trains will be sprayed with coloured liquid so that security officers can identify and arrest them, a report said on Saturday.

"We will confiscate their IDs and give them a ticket," Kereta Api regional spokesman Akhmad Sujadi was quoted as saying.

"We will send a copy of the ticket to their family, their local neighbourhood unit head, their employer, or, if they're students, their headmasters," added Sujadi, who described the move as "unique".

there're easier solutions that that. think of where else the paint will go, all over the train and it's windows,and all over the ground. this isn't a very creative solution.

They ride on the roofs because it's crowded, and they're probably skipping out on paying.
Jagged glass on top would also help.

how freaking cool is that people ride on the top of trains? I wonder how often people fall off... It makes for a good excuse for bewing late to work, thats for sure...

Do they ride on the roofs of the trains because it's too hot inside or because they don't like to sit down?

Maybe there is no room inside, packed like cattle in too few trains.

I guess it's cheaper to spray them with paint than to add more train. Damn people who want to commute! How dare they?!?
