Hi there, so 2 months ago I was coming home from school on the train with some friends and I forgot to buy the 3.50 chf ticket, I have never not bought a ticket since moving here before, but that day I did.


I think the fine is automatically 100 chf if I remember right, so does it compound for 3 months? I assume I owe 300 now?? I'm just a kid and I don't have that kind of money, my parents are on vacation until next week Friday, will the police show up on my doorstep anytime soon?!

Woops. I forgot to add that the ticket inspector caught me and fined me 100 chf that day.

Re: Forgot to pay ticket fine, need info

Why, specifically, are you worried about it now? Have you received a bill, or are you just generally worrying? Anyway - if you're under 18, it'll be your parents' debt.

A friend was talking about the event with me earlier today, so It has been in my mind ever since. I don't think I've ever received a bill,

You received the "bill" the day he gave you the fine right? Simply pay it now (or your parents) and it will go away. Don't pay and it will start adding up.

Go to your nearest ticket office & ask them to clarify it so you know where you stand ready for when your parents come home.

Your profile says you are 19, so not really "just a kid" any longer

In the "real world" you would be liable for your debts...unless you are a troll - not sure which set of rules applies then
