I know it's Queensland (although only just), but what are your thoughts on the existing policy, which is similar to the NSW one? IMHO the scenario that all the kids who can't afford to travel (or are too lazy to walk) are going to be molested/kidnapped/murdered is a bit of scaremongering and one that certain little $h!t$ take advantage of (by not paying and flaunting it).
Admittedly all it will take is for another Daniel Morecombe situation to occur and people will get vocal about it, however isn't it wrong to have the kids think that public transport is a free taxi-type service they can abuse??
