AbrégéA ticket validation device that is protected from debris ingression includes a validator housing defining a ticket entry bezel. The ticket entry bezel defines a first and second major sides and shorter connecting regions that connect the two major sides. The device includes an acceptor assembly that transports a ticket to a ticket reader device and at least one flap positioned between the acceptor assembly and the ticket entry bezel. The flap is biased against one of the first major side or the second major side of the entry bezel. A ticket-side of the flap is pushed away from the one of the major sides by the ticket when inserted into the ticket entry bezel such that the ticket scrapes between a distal end of the flap and the one of the major sides to remove any loose debris from the ticket prior to the ticket reaching the acceptor assembly.
