I talked about the British being respectful. You will also notice there is not a lot of scammers in the UK. Tube, bus, etc. Few will risk defrauding. The bus driver will check every passenger who will get on (except London where you can get on using different doors – not just the one located next to the driver) and controllers are located at every train/tube station (and I include London this time).
In France, it’s the fear of consequences that prevents us to commit fraud (and a lot defrauds because they want to show that they are not scared…).
In the UK, it’s out of respect that we don’t commit fraud. Different mindset, huh?! You start to understand why I don’t want to come back to Paris?!
