bicycles unattended on busy streets, blocking the passage of emergency vehicles

disturbing residentsf comfortable living environments as well as other places
which have such possibility are designated as gUnattended Bicycles Prohibited
Zones.h In areas designated as such,
deserted bicycles are removed as soon as they are found.
