Gold Line Blue

Hold on to your tickets, ladies and gentlemen. The friendly Sheriffs who occasionally ride the Gold Line and ask to see your ticket do, in fact, write citations. One of these po-licemen wrote me up for "fare evasion" because I could not find my ticket. Fortunately, I later found the ticket which I had stuck in one of the books I was carrying; hopefully, I'll be able to get it dismissed at the courthouse. From now on, back right pocket. Always.

I hope you get out of your ticket. But it's even worse than you describe. These deputies will write you up if you merely enter and walk on the Mission Station platform without a ticket. My wife and I were using the deserted platform one day as a shortcut to Nicole's, and we nearly got popped, but they begrudgingly let us off with a stern warning. They were not friendly; they were looking for someone to hassle, or a ticket to write. The fact that we're a nice middle aged couple probably saved us.

Wow. Well I hope the judge I get is more reasonable than the sheriffs. I don't have money to burn. I also found my ticket taking the Gold Line in the morning. I hope when the judge sees both tickets, he'll understand what happened. I can be a little messy and scatterbrained, but I don't think that warrants a fine for fare evasion.

Wow, I use that platform as a shortcut all the time. Guess I'll go around from now on.
