    Probably up-skirt shots! Some guys use mirrors or cameras on poles.

    Given that the MTR also advises not to walk on escalators, I think it's quite reasonable to say that public service announcements do not have to follow any sort of logic.

    In the SCMP a couple of days ago there were three different men up for this. WTF is up with them? If they are that desperate they could just go to the beach and see the same without the need to peer up skirts. Is it the risk of being caught or what?

    Maybe they're hoping to catch some women "going commando"?

    It was a big thing in Japan a few years back. Perhaps still is, don't know. Old dudes taking upskirt pics of girls. That's what it's referring to. Maybe it's been happening in HK too. Weirdos...

    Was it last year or earlier this year when they did that strange report here that told everyone the best places to go if you wanted to look up women's skirts? That wasn't actually the intention of the report but is how it came across.
