New regulations aimed at dampening protests over train delays have been released, Reuters reported. According to the new rules, passengers who stay aboard a train that has arrived at its destination can be threatened with legal action for "endangering train safety." The Railways Ministry regulations now say that passengers cannot protest or hinder the railway by crowding the aisles or refusing to leave the carriage. Chinese passengers have in the past refused to leave trains to protest long delays, asking for compensation and an apology from the railway operators. The ministry said that the new regulations are to ensure a safe and orderly environment during the Olympics next year. China's railways, which are state-run, are the world's busiest, accounting for nearly a quarter of global rail traffic.
