So again, new from Denmark's worst bødefælde, namely metro line to Copenhagen Airport – Copenhagen t/r.
Anyone who runs here regularly, have noticed how strong in numbers checker-corps raking in millions in the form of 750 kroner fines, as lange's off to the right and the left.
the Fines are imposed on tourists in particular, who gets a nasty welcome or parting with Denmark, when they inadvertently kløjes in the incomprehensible tariff system
the Matter is that many do not understand that they need to buy a 3-zone tickets, when they are going to or from the airport - instead of the usual 2-zone tickets.
Thus it is not a 70-year-old israeli couples, who kept a holiday in Copenhagen in July 2017.
When they went out to the airport and home, they asked at Kongens Nytorv local people to the council: It ended with that, they pulled two 2-zone tickets.
'the Two inspectors turned and to our surprise we were told that the tickets we had bought, was wrong,’ wrote mr and the limited liability company Metro Service, which stands for control.
They had each received a fine of dkk 750 dkk.
’It was very uncomfortable to be taken out of the metro and controlled. While we stood there with our passports in his hands, looked at passers-by at us as if we were criminals,’ wrote the couple, who asked to have the fines cancelled with arguments that they had not been out to cheat.
But not on terms.
Lawyers in the Metro Service, which for years has been criticized by, among others, the Consumer council Think of failing to exercise ordinary discretion, maintaining the requirement of the 1,500 crowns.
But then it went stubborn couples to the Board of appeal for Bus, Train and Metro, which again put the Metro Service in place.
the Inspectors had namely by putting two and two together have figured out together, and they married together, had bought a ticket for four zones – that is enough for a person to have the adequate three zones – i.e. a valid ticket.
Then the pair would only have had a fine, determined the board of appeal, which forced Metro Services to cough up.
Metro Service A/S has many times bedyret to make a big effort to advise tourists to billettere correctly.
