I would have gladly parked elsewhere if I thought I was going to get
fined, or if I thought I was causing some inconvenience. But a nearly
totally empty carpark right next to the door of where I'm going, at
7:30pm, well of course people are parking there.

A stern warning would have prevented me parking there just as
effectively as a fine. A fine however increases the likelihood that
people will resent the ANU as a result (why $60? isn't $20 enough?).

Driving away all the pesky visitors would surely make the life of the
parking inspector easier. Until the students go elsewhere and the
parking inspector is fired due to obsolescence.
