    I'm sorry, but to park your bike badly in London, means you need a busticket next day. . .

    So I have only pictures with a correct parked bike

    "Badly parked" might mean different things depending on where you live. For example, in Buenos Aires it seems to be acceptable to park bikes on the sidewalk. Wouldn't fly in the states. I liked B.A.- there seemed to be as many bikes as cars. :clap

    I park on the sidewalk in the 'states when I'm not going to be terribly long and it's a wide sidewalk. Seattle is a good example of this.

    Yes, lots of bikes in B.A., but that's true of many places outside of the US.

    I park mine right in the middle of a 2-lane highway in northern Lake County, IL. I let traffic back up for a mile as I compose my photographs:

    In germany it depends of the town you park. In cologne it's okay, but in other places they kill you for this. . .

    It depends of the size of the hack and the situation. I believe if I park my yellow hack. . .

    I lived in Tokyo for three years. Parking on sidewalks, or any available nook or cranny is almost encouraged because it leaves additional space for cars.

    I usually look for the P and then park by that. I think the P is the international sign for parking. So then I park there.
