A question came up on my local groups forum about spiders and motorcycle parking, specifically in motorcycle parking areas with lines spaced for normal single width machines. It seems a new rider has started parking in the area but due do the width of the machine its taking up two spaces. Since the area is limited to only six spaces when he/she parks there the last motorcycle to arrive can not find an open space.
I understand that in cases where there is a reduced charge for motorcycles based on size of such machines being smaller and therefore allowing more machines per given area or for metered motorcycle parking where the regulations require that ANY vehicle only use space is not the same thing as this situation since this is not a matter of reduced cost but rather a case that the motorcycle parking is in a more convenient location, i.e. closer to the entrance of the building and it also happens that permits for motorcycles are easier to get than other vehicles.
So the question is, should a spider park in motorcycle parking where there are specifically allocated single width lines? What would You do?
