Rail Fare Dodging - Good Thing/Bad Thing?

Messages  1 - 5 of 5

 
 
 

Message 1 - posted by jambread69, Feb 6, 2006

I commute by train and I pay for a monthly pass. However I notice that quite a few of my fellow commuters do not pay for their rail journey. The reason why many don't pay is that they know that by the time the train reaches its destination the conductor in 9 out of 10 cases does not have the time to get through the train.

In a week's time my pass expires, should I remain the honest person that I am and renew or join the growing band of fare dodgers?

While it's not the most serious crime in the world, fare-dodging is theft, it's as simple as that. Surely the best thing to do is to complain to Nexus. The more people who complain about fare-dodgers, the more likely it is that Nexus will respond with action. I certainly think it's a stupid system that they have where the penalty is so low that it makes economic sense just to pay the occasional fine.
