Thumbs down NVCC Loudoun now requires motorcycle parking permits :( - September 13, 2011, 02:06 AM

I just went to class sept 12 and found out that we now need permits for our bikes. There was a big sign right behind the bike parking that said "Motorcycles need permits too!!" Seeing as it's always been free parking for the past semesters I was pissed and had no change for meters. When I left class there was a ticket stuck between my clutch cable (a warning ticket) and triple tree. Just a heads up for you all to make sure you plan ahead.

Are you freaking kidding me? Damn this sucks. They're getting so greedy now.
Oh well, people will be pissed when they see a bike parked in a regular metered spot.

As long as motorcycles dont take up alot of regular spaces (streets, garages, complexs) i think it should be free across america.

They want to cut down on traffic and congestion...two wheels do that and imagine if everyone found out bikes park everywhere for free. You would have less cars and more bikes on the road.

oh well...might sound too much like right.

Imagine if bikes got much better gas mileage than cars, everyone would go buy them instead of Prius'. Oh wait...

expecting motorcycles to pay the same amount as cars for parking makes as much sense as expecting motorcycles to pay the same amount as cars for tolls. Fucking retarted.

Just get 4 bikes to share a spot. Problem solved.

Or, to make a statement, have all motorcycles take their own, full size spot.

if nova wants to support this, then yee that makes too much sense for .net

now to really make sense: make them cost 30% of normal passes, because that's how much less room they take up. HARRRRR!

At GMU, motorcycle parking is like 30% of cage parking. and the last time I bought parking, it was just $15 on top of a car tag if you bought both together. They can be assholes about it though. I once put my bike between a designated spot and a crosswalk (the space between them was the same size as a motorcycle space - I was NOT obstructing the crosswalk at all) and I got ticketed for it...

I paid those fuck shits for Sandycreek parking in Fairfax, plus a regular car pass for 2 years. I parked in similar spots as you, double bikes to a spot (which was fine until 2007) and I can't tell you how many tickets I received over the 5 years I was there.

Fuck GMU parking enforcement. Every time I get an email from GMU requesting donations I tell them I already donated enough to their parking fund.


Oh, I MAD

Georgetown requires permits to park in the Leavy Center garage motorcycle parking area. It's just under $13 per month and even so, I think it's complete BS because the space is otherwise wasted. They couldn't put a regular parking spot there if they tried. There is an unofficial free parking area for bikes outside the Preclinical Science Building, but I just pay for the garage because I don't want my bike out in the elements all the time. UV and infrared from direct sunlight are major determinants in the decay of plastic and rubber.

How much is the permit you are talking about?


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.
