But if I had a journey to do tonight I would avoid public transport for that reason, just as I would avoid dark alleys in urban areas. It isn't going to change soon, so nor will my preferences. The world should be a nicer place, but it isn't.
One is far more likely to encounter abusive drunks on certain roads in most towns most nights of the weekend than on a late train IMO. The British Transport Police are fairly visible around our late trains - I wonder why Wales is getting the short straw?
