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?

I can't believe this! I can't imagine anyone spitting on a bus! Have you seen it happen? Who does this? Wow. Just, wow.

No, no! I've never seen it myself. Hopefully it is just, as Zelox suggested, part of the PM's push for better hygiene (which I missed but I expect it in turn would be in response to the H1N1 virus), and not in response to a recently arisen problem with unauthorised expectoration on our public transport network. But the angry tone of the notice combined with the threat of DNA analysis makes me suspect otherwise.
