  1. I agree! If nobody gets hurt and the train is coming & going whether there’s 5 or 500 people on it, it’s still going to use the same amount of fuel. So who cares!!

  2. You know that in Vienna they didn’t have tickets and validators in trams and buses back in the 80’s? People would get into a bus and put coins into a box to pay for fare. Noone was checking if you paid or not, there were also no controllers. People just paid because it was the right thing to do.

    And then the cold war was over, and many “tourists” from the east started coming to Vienna, and of course none of them would pay. That’s why this system doesn’t work anymore.

    • even in early 90s Russian Public transportation system had the same thing. You would drop your coins on a belt behind plexiglass, then you turn the wheel and you would get your ticket regardless of your coin deposit.

  3. Can somebody give me some suggestions on how to find more info on a person by the licence plate of their vehicle? I tried calling it in with an inquiry of “hey how many parking tickets do I have? my licence plate is …” – doesn’t work like in the movies. If you have anything to reply with at all, please do, as it is a matter of significant importance ! Cheers.

    • This is the Russian song. A lose translation would be “Oh, I’ve missed the last electric (suburban) train and have to walk home . I missed this train because of the date with my girl. Tomorrow it will happen again but I do not care.” Something like it. Music by David Tukhmanov, the singer is Eduard Hill’.
