What is the locked cage on the parking meter for?

parking meter

On Bunda Street yesterday I noticed this locked cage above the parking meter.

Any big brains out there want to explain what it’s for?

What’s Your opinion?

If the canary in the cage dies, it means the atmosphere is toxic and everyone should leave the mine.

Or the canaries are used by the vehicle inspectors to put on people’s windscreens during a blitz on unroadworthy cars in the car park.

How funny are the bent flower pot holders on the light post behind it! They were always going to be an invitation for teenage boys to practice their b-ball skills weren’t they?

Man this government sure does have a habit of pumping money into things without thinking through the design or long term cost/maintenance issues!

Okay, let’s face it – if it’s been installed by the ACT Government it can be for only one of two things:

a. Something to do with some form of revenue raising.

or

b. Public art.

If you mean by housing live rats to attract them, then yes, plausible.

To store the Federal Government’s budget surplus.

Or perhaps it is a sculpture. Title: The absence of owl (Belconnen displacement).

Obviously – to stop the terrists.

Clearly for storing severed heads, as reminder to all parkers that failure to remove their car the minute after their parking expires, that they too may face the stiff penalty.

They’re new cages to hold leprechaun’s who’ve been taking the money from the parking and putting it at the end of rainbows.

Um hello, it’s obviously where they store the bags of coins after they’ve emptied the parking meters! 🙂

That’s where they keep the miniature lions that jump through the flowerpot hoops. Hence the lack of flowerpots.

A candle for when the lights go out…

How bizarre perhaps we’d need a bird brain to get to the bottom of that one!
