Keep motorcycle parking free - sign the petition

This just came in from Kiwi Biker

WCC are reviewing the use of on-road motorcycle parking, which may include 
the introduction of fees / charges.
Do your bit by signing the "keep it free" petition: 
Even if you aren't a Wellingtonian - sign the petition.
If parking fees for motorcycles goes ahead here, you can guarantee one council 
will set a precedent for other councils "justifying" fees to be a nationwide thing.
The Policy was drafted September 2007 with an implementation timeframe of 3 - 5 years. 
The motorcycle section in question is on pg 28 which states:

"f. Review the provision for motorcycle parking, including investigating issues such as 
quantity of spaces, location, parking price and motorcycle parking provision in town 
and suburban centres"
PS: Kudos and credit to BRONZ for organising this.
