(Newser) – "Mind the Kissing Ban" could become the watchphrase of London train stations just as its subways are known for the "Mind the Gap" warning. Officials have posted signs barring kissing in certain sections of the renovated Warrington Bank Quay station because tarrying lovers are causing too much congestion, reports the Independent. Those who insist on locking lips will have to do so in the "kissing zone" where crowds are smaller.
