Demonstration in Prague


On arriving at the local metro station one morning last week I noticed this group of people demonstrating. It seems that they are protesting against the introduction of tourniket (turnstiles) on the metro, which will refuse entry to anyone without a ticket. At the moment there is a kind of “honesty system” whereby you have to “stamp” your ticket in a little machine before passing the line in the station which says “only ticket holders beyond this point”. Presumably this will result in an increased income for the city or the transportation body. I wonder if they considered any alternatives, such as making in mandatory for companies in Prague to pay a monthly season ticket for their employees.
