Teach the young to give up seats


I FULLY agree with Ms Tan Lin Neo ("Reserved red seats: Change mindsets instead"; last Tuesday) as it is common to see able-bodied young people occupying reserved seats and ignoring senior citizens and pregnant women nearby.

There should be seminars, talks and conferences to educate the young about this issue, or perhaps the school syllabus should incorporate teaching the right values.
