Due to the recent increase in ticketing and towing of motorcycles in the Downtown core, along with continued confusion in translating the current bylaws by the general public as well as the City

Sponsor

This Petition is sponsored by Steev Wong. I\'m an avid motorcyclist who lives, works & rides in the City of Vancouver all year round. I\'ve had my fair share of conflicts with the current bylaw and inconsistent enforcement. 6 years is long enough... time to do something about it! You can contact me directly at steevw@shaw.ca

    Comments: Mayor and Council, I live in Kamloops but am often in Vancouver on my motorcycle. There are so many spots where motorcycles could park free. I was also born and raised in Vancouver. I have many friends and family there and they ALL support this. I support free motorcycle parking in Vancouver. Kamloops has had free motorcycle parking spots downtown since about 2005. - many forward thinking cities across the world recognize motorcycles as a viable alternative and encourage their use by allowing motorcycles to park for free - motorcycles take up less space and help reduce congestion/gridlock - motorcycles use less fuel (motorcycles, as defined in the Ontario Highway Traffic Act, use up to 90 percent less gasoline than a regular car or truck) - motorcycle operators currently experience significant parking problems because other motorists often steal their "pay and display" parking receipts and the theft of their receipt often results in the rider receiving a parking ticket - motorcycles have lower greenhouse gas emissions than cars, making them more environmentally friendly - motorcycles create less wear and tear on our roads

    Comments: There is a definite need for increased motorcycle parking in the downtown core. Motorcycle and scooter usage should be encouraged as an alternative to less environmental forms of transportation. I'd like to see free parking at all meters, allowing multiple bikes/scooters per meter, legal sidewalk and alley parking, and generally more designated and discounted motorcycle parking spots on the streets and in lots and garages.
