Some people say it's a stupid idea to have separate coaches for females.
I don't think so. If it helps to prevent criminal acts against women -- young and old -- it gets my vote.
There have been numerous -- God-knows-how-many -- cases of butt-pinching (of women) and all manner of sexual harassment and molest, as well as petty crimes -- on trains (KTM) during rush hours .
What have we got to lose-lah?
So, I welcome Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad's (KTMB) only women's coach in the middle section of its train.
The women-only coach could be identified by the pink stickers on its door and windows.
Here's excerpts from the Bernama report:
He said during a trial period of one week, KTMB would also collect feedback from the public on the separation and would extend the new separation system to other platforms."
So, if you're a KTM commuter, give your feedback on the service.
