My daughter is being prosecuted for being on a Greater Manchester Tram 'not having a valid ticket enabling her to do so'

- Reg 4 (1) (a) Greater Manchester Metrolink System Byelaws

 

She had a pass, ( left at home in error) and can prove it ,

but was too late responding to being issued with a 'Standard Fare' ( GM equivalent of the penalty fare)

 

Does anyone know if 'having a ticket' must mean physical possession at the time?

 

Can anyone help with a contact group similar to Passenger Focus- who don't deal with trams.

 

Any other suggestions gratefully received

Hi

hearing date not till 2nd Feb

she hasn't pleaded yet

It is all a bit annoying, and she sent proof of her weekly pass back in November,

 

 

and the phone representative had said that it would be sufficient even after the 21 day period

- but then she heard nothing until yesterday when the summons arrived

 

I fear that it may be a strict liability offence and that 'having a ticket' means having it on you

 

but haven't been able to find a definitions section on the bylaws

thanks

it is a case of must have the ticket on you yes

 

 

but.

if this is the first and only offence

 

 

theres nowt to stop her sending a pleading letter

asking to settle out of xourt still

 

 

offer to pay all reasonable admin fess etc etc

to avoid a prosecution as i'e it will ruin her future if she got a record

 

 

see various threads here for examples of what to write

 

 

it is not too late
