The water doesn't know that it's supposed to turn when it gets to the common drain pipe. Install a sign for it with an arrow showing the proper direction.

The corrugated trap is prohibited.

Sounds like it was to far away from the sink,and they improvised.More than likely it is clamped to the black hose with a piece of galvinized half inch pipe and two hose clamps.

This is common but green hose has a tendency to leak as it does not have the flexability to adjust to the pipe coupling.

The part I can see looks like a screw on which is bad.Think of all the times they leak outside.

I would have recommended it be replaced .
