Please explain to me the reason for ticket validation

Jump to last reply

Whenever someone mentions going to Italy, for example, and taking the train or the vaporetto in Venice, someone always warns, "Don't forget to validate your ticket in the machine so you won't get fined."

Can someone please explain to me the whole point of validation (besides soaking unsuspecting tourists). I mean, you buy the ticket. Why the hell do you need validation?
