    you really should warn tourists of the transportation officials and the fines that will be charged if someone lacks a clip card or transportation pass, or if they misuse their clip card. i’ve seen many tourists get in this bind and it’s always sad when people don’t understand the system and get in trouble with the transportation officials.
