I just recieved a fine for refeeding a meter. I'm from Queensland and had absolutely no idea this wasn't allowed. Aren't these infrared machines that can sense the vehicle? Then why the hell did it execpt my money knowing the car hasn't moved. F#xk the corrupt Hobart City Council.

I have been victim to 'feeding the meter' after being asked by the machine if I would like to, and then been ticketed. Total scam

I haven’t received a ticket thankfully. However, they are time consuming to use in comparison to the previous meters. My child is impatient waiting for me and the meter to complete a transaction.
Why do you have to press ‘back’ to start? It’s slow and hard to see the screen. It’s stressful knowing that something could unknowingly go wrong so therefore I print the receipt and stick on dash just Incase. Therefore, increasing paper wastage, bad for the environment.

Just yesterday (18/06/19) I received an infringement (meter expired) which was flagrantly fraudulent. Fortunately I kept the receipt from the meter. I had more then two hours remaining on the bay at the time the infringement was issued. I'd hate to think this institutionalised corruption but, as this is now the third similar event for me in 2019, I'm beginning to wonder. Keep your meter receipts, write letters of demand and push media to expose C of H, or the operators within the City who are either supporting this fraud or turning a blind eye. We're supposed to be better than this in Tasmania.
