Outremont tickets parked bikes, but doesn't provide decent bike parking

Outremont: bike-hater capital of Montreal

Why does Outremont hate bikes? First the botched cross-street access to the Cote-Ste-Catherine bike path and now a campaign to ticket bicycles locked outside.

It wouldn't be so bad if the city actually provided decent bike stands to park a bike, but it doesn't. The fine-print on the notice says that the city provides ample and quality bike-parking stands, but that's complete bullshit. (click here for our critique of Outremont's bad-design bike-parking stands)

An example of worst-design-style bike stands on Laurier Avenue that Outremont offers to cyclists, which are nowhere near where residents actually need bike parking to be located.

Read carefully: Outremont hates bikes.

If this is the most important crime our police officers can find, then we need less police officers.
