The amounts of the fines increase if you commit the same offence within twelve months.
- fare dodging
- inappropriate behaviour
type 2 breaches (fraud and dangerous behaviour) are considered very serious offences due to
- their serious consequences (e.g. delaying a vehicle)
- the risk they cause to the offender themselves or to others (e.g. getting in or out of the vehicle before it has come to a stop)
- their fraudulent nature (e.g. forging a ticket)
If you do not have a valid season ticket with you at the time of an inspection or have forgotten to validate your MOBIB-card on the vehicle? Then you will also be given an official report.. From the second breach within twelve months a fine will be imposed (type 3).
