Enough to make you spit?

Ick. I leave the country for six weeks and already it's going to the dogs? (No offence.) I've been seeing the sign below crop up on buses lately. Spitting has become such a problem on our buses that Brisbane Transport feels the need to remind passengers that it's not on?

Going to the dogs, eh'.

I'll have you know that I practice good hygene and also social practices (for Australian social situations).

For all of the years of catching public transport I have seen many things. People drinking alcohol, sniffing paint (sprayed into Coke containers), sleeping (sometimes with a bit of drool, yes), singing, kissing (french style with lot 'o' tongue, bleh) but have not yet seen someone spit. Especially in a bus.

I assume this is not a result of people spitting, but a result of Krudd's speach to everyone to keep clean etc... and all of the money spent for advertising as a result. Therefore, this is part of the money spent rather than as a result of people being unclean asshats. Most likely at least.
