Small annoyances a collection part two

I have mentioned before the issues generated by colour coding the bus to the route, and then changing the bus for a different colour.  Today they went one better, the bus was red at the front and blue at the back.  Now that is taking confusion just too far.

People leaving the free paper on the bus,loose on the seat, where it slips to the floor making a slip or trip hazard for other passengers.

Dirty seat
Feet on seats, or perhaps dirty seats in general. Now I can just about understand people sitting in the back of the bus bracing themselves with feet on the edge of the facing seat. The occasional child slipping parental supervision for a moment and trying to stand.  But I can't see any reason for adult sized muddy footprints on the shiny metal seats in the bus station.

Oh and shiney leads me to another annoyance, something I did not like when first I came across it but thought perhaps I would get used to.  I mentioned it at the time, the lighting on the new small busses( click here for link) but their irritation factor has only grown exponentially. There appears to be no seat on the bus in which I can sit that does not result in their headache inducing blue beam. I can cope with the at turns slippery or sticky (depending on the temperature) leather seats and the fancy looking floor that has less traction than the old one.  However, those lights are getting to me.
