Wesleying received this friendly PSA about bike parking from Physical Plant and Wesleyan Students for Disability Rights. If you have suggestions, note that you should “feel free to comment on this post”:
Have you been ticketed?
If you’ve received a purple ticket like this one, your bike is inappropriately locked. This tag will serve as a warning from Physical Plant. By locking your bike to a railing, light pole, sign post, or tree you are impeding pedestrian travel and damaging poles, posts, and trees. In addition you may be making stairs or walkways inaccessible to members of our community who require these railings to get around campus. If your bike is found attached to anything besides a bike rack, it will be removed and stored at Physical Plant.
We are also looking for suggestions of locations for additional bike racks. We want to have enough bike racks available in high-traffic areas so that it is not necessary to lock bikes to railings and poles. Feel free to comment on this post or send us an email.
If you have any questions, please call Jeff Sweet of Physical Plant at (860) 685-3763 or email wesdisabilityrights(at)gmail(dot)com. This is a combined campaign of Physical Plant and Wesleyan Students for Disability Rights.
