POP with Attitude

Don't ride a bus or tram in Tallinn, Estonia, without a ticket. the city is considering 10-day jail sentences for fare evaders!

I should be less bitter about the fine I paid for riding CalTrain w/o a valid ticket (just one stop past my zone!) a few years ago.

Writers to the Tallinn newspaper Eesti Paevaleht seem to think this is going a bit to far. One jokes--"if that doesn't work, we'll just cut the fare-cheats' hands off!"
