How do people find it natural to have free motorways when it costs a fortune to build and maintain but accept to pay CHF 5.60 for a return trip in Zurich?
Free?! I pay >60% tax on the petrol, tax on my car, a vignette... honestly: You apparently don't have a car, so let me explain it to you: Motorists pay today a lot of taxes for their mobility and the money is already today used to subsidize your public transport.

abo = abonnement

Which means subscription (the purchase of a series of things), in this case a transportation ticket good for one or more months.

That is the problem, accidently running a red light, I almost died once because somebody accidently ran a red light...
Fines work as a mechanism to prevent further recklessness.
so what you're trying to say is that accidents should be outlawed ?

I think he is pretty obviously saying that red lights are there for a reason and so are the fines for running one. If the fine makes you a bit more careful only for a couple of weeks, it did work and could prevent accidents.

Do you fine your kids if they do wrong in the exam and or do a mistake?

If not, then how the hell they learn?, fines is just part of an economical plans nothing more, nothing less
Fines, historically, are an alternative to prison.

What do you propose as an alternative to fines?

You cannot do that to LiB. You simply cannot.
Oh, and good luck at the lake with Mowvich.
Hope you score with him.
