A recent series of newspaper articles revealed that passengers who file fictitious injury claims against public transportation entities have become a serious menace to metropolitan areas and add a huge monetary burden to the city’s budget. The fraudulent plaintiffs in these law cases are often backed by personal injury attorneys and less than scrupulous medical doctors who conspire to defraud by feigning injuries, fabricating medical reports, and exaggerating legal complaints arising from alleged bus and train (mostly slip-and-fall) accidents.

City Attorney: “Those who look to the public trough as a means to ameliorate their economic burdens which they suffer not at all from the hands of the government should not be appeased. Who pays for the monetary judgements doled out to these fakes? You do!”

Mayor: “The honest fare payers and dutiful taxpayers are ‘rewarded’ by increased fares and higher taxes.”

The quote by the city attorney in the second paragraph probably serves to address

fraud as a menace that hampers city dwellers’ every day lives

activities of a depraved few who see public transit as a way to fund their marginal existence

economic burdens disproportionately placed on the virtuous instead of on the callous and selfish

the enormous economic interdependency between public transit and the community it serves

passengers who suffer actual injuries on public transit
