Daily Telegraph: Jump-proof barriers: The gates are shutting on Sydney train fare cheats →

This exclusive photograph shows the E2 gate with its two chest-high paddles making it virtually impossible for a fare evader to leap over the barrier. They are also designed to stop fare dodgers “tailgating” other passengers through the gate.
