Running late to an exam, rushing to the train and just make it? Phew! Go to touch on but later get stopped by a ticket inspector who gives you a big stink eye and doesn’t just Shake It Off* but shakes their finger instead?
We have, and it really sucks, especially when you think you’ve done the right thing.
We’ve got a few tips for you to help get you through:
- The ticket inspector can ask for your personal details if they suspect you have done something wrong;
- What you tell the ticket inspector will goes on a report and will be available later on (so don’t try and change your story!);
- If you are issued with a fine, you have lots of legal options (see the link below) – importantly don’t panic, you can always get more time to deal with it and worst case (if you don’t have the money) you can ask for a payment plan; and
- If you are an RMIT student come and see us (seriously we love talking about fines!).
