The Guàrdia Urbana will inform owners of badly parked bikes posted 08/11/2007 at 16:33 h.

Bikes must not be padlocked to trees, traffic lights, benches or litter bins The Barcelona local police, the Guàrdia Urbana, have started a campaign to inform bike owners of parking restrictions.

Leaflets will be hung on the handlebars, and are to remind owners that, in the case of not complying with the bylaw on circulation of pedestrians and vehicles, they may be reported and the bikes removed.

The leaflet also informs owners of where it is not permitted to leave bikes: trees, traffic lights, benches and litter bins.

Bikes must also not be left in zones reserved for loading and unloading, parking spaces reserved for people with disabilities, by emergency exits, in front of hospitals, by bus stops, or by pedestrian crossings.
