"Pre-paid Oyster cards contains a feature to cap the maximum daily charge to the equivalent day-pass rate.|
However, we decided not to turn that feature on as we thought it would confuse people"
According to people on uk.transport.london, they never got this technology to work properly and are still trying to get it to work - so the 'feature' is there but if it cocks up half the time TfL would be right to not turn it on.
