Do you fare dodge on the train/bus? Watch
For the last few months, on the way back from uni the ticket conducters have stared for ages and handed it back disapprovingly without saying anyrhing. After it happened again today I decided to look up the off peak rules and found out an off peak ticket has not been valid between 4pm and 7:30pm since September 2014. I am so embarrassed! I'm not sure why the ticket conducter never said anyrhing to me since I didn't have a valid ticket. I'm so embarrassed and upset but at least I know for future.
Have you/do you fare dodge? How much do you reckon you have saved?
In my country (Greece) unfortunately a lot of people more than 75% dodge fares as the security system isn't good enough, especially in the subways, and look at us now. It's things like that that ruin the economy.
What if everyone thought like you?
I don't see why you should do something like that. When you are provided a service you must pay for it.
There is nothing morally wrong with fare dodging imo, it isn't at all like stealing from a private company - rail companies do not exist in anything which even remotely resembles a market environment. It can be a bad idea for practical reasons (i.e. you may get caught) but I dont think morality comes into it.

Passive aggresive psychopaths are not a lot better than cockroaches.
I don't remember ever dodging a fare, I don't really use public transport but I would be too scared to do it tbh. If you get caught you're a bit ****ed.
But christ, these people who act like fare dodging is the equivalent of murder need to chill and live a little - some of us just have to do what we have to do. LMAO.
On the other hand on those particular trains it's a £20 instant fine if you don't have a ticket, you can't just buy one on the train.
