    Hi. I am a student from Preston. Today, I found a valid Preston Student Term buspass. There was no student badge, no student iD, just a buspass itself. At the way home, I tried to use it, but the bus driver stopped me and said something like, "I'm sure, that this buspass belongs to someone from different college, because your student badge has a different colour". The bus driver took the buspass from me and asked me to pay for a ride fee. After i paid, he wrote down my name from my student badge on a piece of paper. I'm just wondering if I will have any problems for that. Did anyone of you experienced it before ? I am just scared that i will have to pay alot for "commiting a crime" or something.

    If they took your details then there's a possibility of them wanting to fine you I suppose.
