A pregnant woman got fined for walking the wrong way in the Paris Metro. She took a shortcut to save time. A station inspector caught her. A Metro spokesman said the woman did not follow the rules. The rules are to help people get to trains or out of stations. There are many easy-to-see "walk this way" signs in the stations.

Many people on social media are angry the woman got fined. One group said it was "stupid". It wants the rules to change. Another woman also got fined. She said: "I was the only person in the corridor when they stopped me." The Metro said rules are rules. It said car drivers must also follow rules or get fined.
