Fine details

The last Barcelonian curiousity is the sign in all the Metro carriages telling passengers what is probibited and the fines for breaking the rules. All quite straightforward and clear in three languages. However, I found the fine for smoking to be somewhat curious (sorry no picture). If caught smoking the fine is 30.05 Euro. Why the .05? Will that little extra really discourage those who can afford the 30 Euro?

it's 30.o5 because before the euro the fines were 5000 pesetas and 30.oo wouldn't be 5000ptas.
