Just reading my local paper, The West Briton, the number of people within the court sections for fare evasion stood out to me, but What caught my eye was how quick from offence to court. Offences that happened on 15th April were in court on 23rd April. This surprised me how quickly it went through the courts as I believed it to be a longer process to get a hearing date submit paper work etc. this article gives an idea of fines being imposed for what I deem to be tiny fares. http://www.westbriton.co.uk/COURT-L...trates-April/story-26379733-detail/story.html It doesn't surprise me to see lots of Cornwall prosecutions. i use the train 10-12 days a month for return journeys to work on days I don't need my car, plus some leisure journeys and I seem to be encountering revenue protection nearly every day over the last couple of months, having never recalled seeing revenue in the last 3 years. In fact rarely having my ticket checked in that time.
