Poll: Do you ever chance your arm with your bus/train fare?

Go on, be honest…

A RAIL COMMUTER has paid a bill of over €5,500 after they were found to be using an annual train ticket for a shorter journey than they were taking each day.

Irish Rail caught the commuter, applied a fine and then charged the commuter nine months worth of back fares.

But are they being sticklers? Loads of people chance their arm paying smaller fares on public transport don’t they? No?

Today’s poll: Do you ever chance your arm with your bus/train fare?

Poll Results:

No, it's wrong, I wouldn't do it (3359)
Yes, but only rarely, it's still wrong (2496)
Yes, it's only small change to them (1676)
Never have but wouldn't rule it out (1629)
