How to get MC parking in Downtown Oakland??

Discussion in 'Bay Area Bikers' started by J. Michael Scott, Oct 17, 2007.

  1. Tootling around in the rain yesterday, I occurred to me that there
    doesn't seem to be the blocks of motorcycle/scooter slots, such as
    there are in S.F.

    Any of you local, i.e., East Bay riders interested in perhaps getting
    this going? Might be timely, as City of Oakland seems to be re-vamping
    their whole method of payment. They've been increasingly using the one
    "box", as opposed to individual meters.

    I'm gonna see how the local bike press (City Bike, Urban Moto, etc.)
    can get behind this.

    Anybody ??

    I hear this time and again. Back in the 80s, they were pretty lax in SF
    about parking on the sidewalk, as long as you didn't block anything. I
    hear those days are gone. :(

    Some security cop wannabe wrote me a ticket for it one day, and I
    complained to the court. What they said was, "If you want to get this
    changed, you can." (by 'this' I mean moto parking availability on my block)

    I think it's a good idea. More than one voice will get more attention.
    Good luck!
