It’s just stupid – bike bays are over subscribed, so build more, but to pay for them the council wants to charge us. How much would it actually cost? Serisously? What’s more by the time they’ve paid off the ‘costs’ what happens to the money then? Well it goes to Westminster Council of course.. to fill the coffers to spend on other projects.
Motorbikes cut congestion and polution. How can making it harder to use them in London help the capitals aim of cutting both those things? It’s insane.
Ian isn’t happy about this either.
Now Westminster Council have been told to stop clamping and towing away cars they are unashamedly tapping money out of the next highest source of road users. I mean really how much money does it cost to paint a motorcylce bay? I am sure they will be looking at ways to tap money out of electric car users soon. Westminster council will always find a way to squeeze money out of people using their streets and try and justify it with some bogus excuse. I wish we all could just boycott the area.
Totally with you on this one and latest figures from Westminster council are as follows:
AND BACK TO CLAMPING, LOOKS LIKE THEY ARE STILL AT IT!
Sorry one other thing!
