Quick & Easy Motorcycle and Scooter Parking Petition


As you may know, I'm a proponent of two-wheel vehicle ridership, i.e. scooters and motorcycles. For years, we've been trying to get legalized two-wheel vehicle parking in our towns and cities. Given the current state of high gas prices, we are only going to add more two-wheel vehicle riders to the road, which makes available two-wheel vehicle parking even more critical.

Just as parking spaces for compact cars and handicapped parking stalls have increased efficiency and convenience in urban and suburban communities, officially designated two-wheel parking facilities can do the same.

Government agencies should consider removing the two-wheeler from the four-wheeler parking space and placing it in its own, scaled down zone. This is a simple concept that can be embraced by city councils, urban planners, local merchants, contractors, shopping center management and private businesses whenever parking for motor vehicles is provided.

I'd like to ask you to sign the Vespatition, promoting the conversion of some automobile parking spaces to two-wheel spaces. You can do it right here: Vespausa

The results will be publicized and sent directly to our local mayors.

Hey man, not only did I sign the petition, but I kicked the attached e-mail out to seven of my cronies. This is real strong stuff, and I'm glad that I stopped by tonight to take part.

Have fun,
