Impropper signing in motorbike bay

Reported via Android phone in the Car parking category anonymously at 00:25, Thu 3 June 2010

Sent to Hackney Council 5 minutes later

The signing in this (apparantly) motorbike parking area is really unclear. There appears to be 4 bays which are regularly used by motorbike bays however only one of them is clearly marked Solo MC - the others seem to be marked "Business Permits Only" - if bikes are allowed to be parked here could you make the signing less ambiguous?

Legally speaking, if the council is inconsistant you may loose the ability to enforce parking restrictions elsewhere, since it is now on the record that there are a number of ambiguously signed motorbike parking areas.

  • Good point! According to LBH's website: "Motorcycles and mopeds can be parked for free in Hackney. You do not need to purchase a permit or voucher to park one of these vehicles in Hackney’s controlled parking zones, but you must park:
    in a permit bay (where resident’s AND business permits can be used to park);
    perpendicular to the kerb; and,
    at one end of the bay, in a manner that would not prevent permit holders from parking in that bay." (That last bit of instruction is also ambiguous and doesn't really stand up to scrutiny. What happens if you leave room for a Smart car to park but the permit holder wants to park a long Transit van?).
