The ongoing saga of illegally parked bikes

The point of bike parking restrictions is

a) giving bike nazis a forum to assert themselves
b) raising money for local government coffers.
c) stopping bikes taking over the footpaths / public space esp. around railway stations.
d) creating rules to irritate the citizenship.

The correct answers are A and B and D.
If you answered C  you are suffering idealism induced delusions.

Take a look at the photo below.
Barriers erected to stop illegal bike parking.

Hey wait a minute..... aren't parking restrictions meant to free up the footpath....
The difference betweens bikes being here and the area being simply cordoned of is.........
See answers A and D.

See answer B.  (11/ 24) is the last day that they collected bikes to take to the bike repository. 4,000Y to get it back.
