 Pay by plate, A facile attempt at justifying greed

Auckland City Council has decided that it is not a good idea that users of their parking facilities who do not use up the time paid for should be able to give their tickets to a stranger.
They have therefore decided that payment should be made only for the vehicle to which the original payment applied, via a "pay by plate" approach. This effectively stops the ability to give unexpired ticket time to others.
Auckland Transport's communication manager described the new move (NZ Herald 27.08.2011), thus:
"Asked whether the system was designed to maximise parking revenue by preventing motorists from giving away unexpired tickets, communications manager Sharon Hunter said the organisation was "all about giving more choice to the customer through innovation"."
Arrant nonsense. Just tell the truth.
