The Bad Parking Award

Bicycle badly parked

Today’s bad parking award

There are probably more bikes than places to park them in parts of Amsterdam so parking tends to get a bit casual, with bikes parked across footpaths, locked to trees, leaning on street lights.

At central station there are parking areas provided, and you’re supposed to park in the racks provided – which handily also have something to lock your bike to. People can be in a bit of a rush in the mornings and parking gets a bit haphazard. But this is just silly. Not because it breaks the rules, but because the person who parked their bike in a hurry has blocked 5 other bikes which are parked legally. Their owners will have to move the stupidly parked bike to get to their own.

So today’s bad parking award goes to the owner of this bike.
