Luas has admitted to overcharging commuters... but HOW did this happen?

Well, this is just brilliant, isn't it?

You put 50 quid on your Leap Card and within a few days (OK, weeks) it's all gone.

We often complain about transport fares in Ireland, but now that we've learned that we've been overcharged, we're not too happy at all.

Luas and its operating company, Transdev, has admitted to overcharging commuters with peak fares - during non-peak hours.

Apparently, Transdev claim that it's due to 'clock-drift'; when the time on the validation machine is running fast.

Transdev told 98fm: "It is possible that PC clock drift can occur due to hardware or software faults or device restarts.

"This issue has been checked by our technicians and a fix will be implemented shortly."

The company says that the clocks are only running fast by two and a half minutes... but customers are still being overcharged. Annoying.
