Motorbikes and parking tickets - Thommo
You may recall previous threads about motorcycles and scooters in London parking on the pavement and covering their numberplates so a ticket can not be issued.

It appears the latest round in this war is that the ticket is being issued on the VIN number.

So presumably that will have to covered as well now...

Motorcyclists usually far worse than car drivers for parking IMHO.

...and ignoring road signs

...and driving without due care

...and speeding

I wait with baited keyboard....

Maybe I'll even get a reply from the careful biker who rides down Eastern way in Carlisle at probably 100mph+ in a 30mph zone at 430am every morning....perhaps he is chasing the person who stole his exhaust baffles....

Not wishing to sidetrack this thread but I think that it's people who decide to speed, park dangerously, ignore road signs etc. Many motorcyclists are drivers too and their mindset is the same - they do what they perceive they can get away with at the time. It's far easier to undertake and get away with bad behaviour on a bike than in a car. For every speeding, tailgating and undertaking motorcyclist see a car driver who'd be doing just the same if he had the space and performance to do it. As for red ligts, I agree tha cyclists often igore the but many drivers do too. Just have a look in your rear view mirror next time you go though just as the lights change to red and see how many drivers follow you.

Are VIN numbers that visible? Most are on the frame somewhere and a lot of bikes have bodywork. Where do they stick the notice, if there isn't a windscreen?

"Most are on the frame somewhere"

As they have to be, of course. Duh!

Why can't I cover my car numberplate up and park it on the pavement? i.e. Why does this just work for bikes?
