Waiting in the aisles

A shopper is distracted yesterday, making herself a possible target for thieves. Police warn supermarket customers are being preyed on at a growing rate. West Kowloon police said thefts from shoppers in the district's supermarkets had increased from 26 in 2002 to 86 last year, with 69 in the area so far this year.

Children at risk in supermarket aisles

The news of a young boy crushed by a TV set brings to mind another potential danger which will especially put small children at risk this Lunar New Year.

In response to your reports about injuries due to goods falling from fixed shelving in supermarkets, I suggest that goods stacked on pallets in supermarket aisles pose a greater risk.

These temporary looking pallets, often stacked high with 'bargains', remain week after week. In addition, the pallets complicate the passage of shoppers with carts.

Looking for a Wellcome change

I refer to Jason Hutchings' letter ('Aisles obstructed in stores', South China Morning Post, December 16) about the shelve blockades in a Wellcome supermarket.

I have come across the same situation at the Wellcome supermarket near Style House, in Causeway Bay.

Aisles obstructed in stores

I am disappointed by Wellcome supermarket managers, who seem to think it is appropriate when filling shelves in their stores, to also fill the aisles with produce.

Market must be cleaned up

I am a frequent customer at the Yeung Uk Road Market, and feel there is plenty of room for improvement.

The aisles in the market are too narrow for people, because hawkers put their goods both on their stalls and on the aisles, thus blocking access. Surely, this is against regulations.

As a frequent flyer, I could hardly believe my eyes - South China Morning Post pictures concerning the smooth evacuation of a plane in Kai Tak on Sunday, treated us to the amazing sight of passengers clutching hand luggage. What on earth were these people thinking? Have they ever read the safety instructions?

Simple reason

I HAVE been interested to read the recent correspondence about empty seats at the Rugby Sevens.

Are these buses safe?

WHILE buses are generally safe, double-decker buses can topple over. Take, for example, the accident on December 12.

While I, in no way, wish to comment on the circumstances of the accident on December 12, I have expressed my concern over safety on buses before - letter headlined, 'Blocked aisles on buses hazardous', South China Morning Post, November 30.

Blocked aisles on buses hazardous

I REFER to Mr Steve Ball's article headlined, 'Passenger size a growing concern', which appeared in the South China Morning Post on November 28.

As a frequent user of buses, I have often noticed that once a so-called 'three-seater' has two occupants, few people venture to join the duo.

Stay away from passageways

I REFER to Mr Richard Castka's letter (South China Morning Post, February 20) and would like to advise that both the organiser of the Elton John concerts and the Coliseum management share his concern for an unobstructed view of the stage for all our patrons.
