About movement, storage, return of illegally parked bicycle

Last update date May 29, 2020

Bicycle and motorcycle are very convenient vehicles, but it disturbs traffic of people and emergency vehicle when left unattended in public places such as roads and adversely affects civic life.
Therefore we establish "the regulations (the outside site) about illegally parked prevention such as Yokohama-shi bicycles" in Yokohama-shi in 1985 and move left bicycle and motorcycle based on the regulations to storage area.

Designation of illegally parked prohibition area such as bicycles

In Yokohama-shi, we appoint around each railroad station in "illegally parked prohibition areas such as bicycles" and move bicycle, motorcycle left in area chiefly. By installing mark in area including around station, publicize.
