World's fastest train delayed, perp gets away
The irritated passengers were unable to see justice served, as the smoker eluded capture – he fled the scene when the alarm that stopped the train went off. Reuters notes a Xinhua news agency report in which a spokesman for the Guangzhou Railway Group Corporate says, "Smoking is strictly forbidden on the Wuhan-Guangzhou high-speed train, even in the toilet." He continued, "It could trigger the alarm and even cause equipment failures."
It could also lead to a delay, he didn't need to explain, that could cost the passengers all the efficiency they purchased.
