@solar10 @kingu_platypus_gidora Il est moins dans le crayonnage. Ici il me semble que c'est vraiment 50 euros

@RedWalloon @kingu_platypus_gidora
Je pense qu'il a peut-être eût une courte période crayonnage mais c'est vrai, il est plus pour coller des stickers. 😂

@kingu_platypus_gidora et côté trottoir "piétons rampez sous le bas de caisse"

English translation: "Cyclists ride on the roof" (I think...)

Sounds like… literally the worst way to promote cycling?

@m It's more about discouraging from parking on the cycle lane.

Yup, but there are way better ways to do it… Spray-painting someone car isn’t good for either cyclists nor drivers

@m It might not be the best way.. But I ignore the context so idk. If they park there all the time and piss off everyone, it might be worth it.

@kingu_platypus_gidora @m What are the better ways of promoting cycling to people who absolutely don’t care?
@hypolite @kingu_platypus_gidora @m In our town, get out and ride. I've got in to recumbent triking this year, and it's a blast. But in a town that's extremely hilly, just being part of the team that shows it can be done is important.
Make life better for cyclists, not worse for drivers (build cycleways etc.). If cycling is cheaper, faster and safe people will stop driving :)
@kingu_platypus_gidora @m How does illegally parking a car on the bicycle lane makes life better for cyclists and not worse for drivers? What's the better way in this situation?

Illegal car parking? No. But spray-painting someone car makes life worse for owner of that car, and not really better for cyclists - that one person maybe won’t park on the bicycle lane, but hundreds other people will

Better way depends on where this has happened. If that person was parking there repeatedly, I would probably call police. It probably will make that driver’s life worse, but at least they could explain why they did that - maybe it was really important to park there quickly etc.

@kingu_platypus_gidora @m Making the driver's life worse is the point since they've been making the cyclist's life worse themselves.

In an ideal world the driver didn't make the cyclists' life worse but here we are. There must be consequences for socially negative behavior like illegal parking otherwise it will just go on. Potential negative consequences are the only way of making selfish people change behavior, and it only works if there are actual consequences from time to time.

Calling the police often isn't an option, and at least in France the police itself has been shown parking on the bicycle lane or the sidewalk even when there's no obvious good reason for them to do so.
