Dumpers, taxi drivers flout law also

I have noted observations by some correspondents about the lack of compliance regarding smoking in bars and eating and drinking on the MTR.

To this list, please add taxis, which leave motors running summer and winter at taxi stands and, more importantly, the dumping of household rubbish in refuse bins in the street.
