I am student. Yesterday I took a train and there was no oyster contact machine and the ticket office was closed I knew I had money on my oyster so I boarded a train as I was about to reach my destination a ticket officer asked me for a ticket and I showed him my oyster he said there was no evidence of me tapping in so I explained to him what had happened and he said oysters are not allowed in that region and I told him I was not aware of that he said he didn’t believe me so he said that I would receive a penalty he didn’t give me a receipt he said I may receive a letter. Today I was rushing to school and the ticket office at the station was closed and there was a long queue at machine outside I was about to miss my train so I boarded on the train with the intention of explaining to the people at my stop that there was a queue and if I could purchase a ticket at my station but the same ticket officer which came to me again and I had explained to him the situation he told me that I could be prosecuted and printed a receipt that I broke bylaw 18 and would receive a letter soon. I’m very confused and don’t know what to do or write on the letter. I’ve read other threads relating to this situation. How would I go about writing I want to resolve this out of court.
