I have always wondered what would happen.. How can they give you a ticket if they dont know who you are..


This is an honest question.. what does transit authory do in this situation?
I had a friend that got caught, said she didn't have ID on her and just gave a fake name / address and received the ticket. She just went on her way out of the skytrain station and threw the ticket away at the nearest garbage can =/

Pretty sure she just got lucky with a lazy officer tho :P I wouldn't recommend trying that LOL


and @ OP, just pay the ticket.. and hope it reminds you not to "forget" next time :P

My question still stands.. what if i was fine with waiting it out..

Can they hold me indefinitely, since im refusing to give up my ID?

Or would i just get thrown in Jail as John Doe. But that doesn't give me the right to a fair and reasonable trial..

If they can't positively identify you the criminal code permits them to hold you until identity is established. How can they release you under a PTA, app. notice, to be summonsed later etc if they don't know who you are ?

You would be held in custody and charged with obstruction under the Criminal Code. Your fingerprints would be taken and compared to fingerprints of people previously convicted of offences. If you had no criminal record that would allow a fingerprint match and you hadn't identified yourself by the next morning (or Monday morning if it was a weekend) you would appear in court before a judge for a bail hearing where the judge would decide if he should release you. One of the factors a judge considers in giving a person bail is if the identity of the accused has been established, so I highly doubt you would be released if you are still refusing to provide your identity.

Beyond that, I have never seen it come to this because people generally identify themselves before it gets to this, I would assume possibly DNA testing or even releasing your photo in the paper in hopes of identifying you.

Seems like a lot of trouble to avoid $175 ticket.

My friend lost his tix, got checked, transit cop came, ran his name and he must had a problem with his check coz the vancouver cops came too. I suggest... pay the ticket, dispute it if you can but do not ignore. Always pay with credit card on the ticket machine so you have paper work!

Not everybody caves in and ID's themselves...

Man in the Iron Mask


L'Homme au Masque de Fer (The Man in the Iron Mask). Anonymous print (etching and mezzotint, hand-colored) from 1789. According to the caption on the original (not seen here) the Man in the Iron Mask was Louis de Bourbon, comte de Vermandois, an illegitimate son of Louis XIV.
The Man in the Iron Mask (French: L'Homme au Masque de Fer) is a name given to a prisoner arrested as Eustache Dauger in 1669, and held in a number of jails, including the Bastille and the Fortress of Pignerol (today Pinerolo). He was held in the custody of the same jailer, Bénigne Dauvergne de Saint-Mars, for a period of 34 years. He died on 19 November 1703 under the name of Marchioly, during the reign of Louis XIV of France, 1643-1715. The possible identity of this man has been thoroughly discussed and has been the subject of many books,because no one ever saw his face, which was hidden by a mask of black velvet cloth.

Hmm interesting for sure.. so you would get held indefinitely until then could prove who you were. all that for a not paying a skytrain ticket.. at least you could get free meals out of that.. if i were homeless thats what i would do..

I ran into a few people over the years that used to do just that, usually older alcoholics. They would do some property crime to get arrested so they could spend the cold winter months inside. The legal system screwed them though...these days it can take up to 2 years to get a first appearance where you can plead guilty so you have to backtime your crime to get B&B from Her Majesty. Pretty difficult to do through an alcoholic haze.
