Reason For Objection

I've edited the following from BMF's webpage - cut and past this into the form. If anyone has better wording - let's have it.
My reason for objecting is that the parking charges introduced for PTWs (Powered Two Wheelers) by Westminster City Council run contrary to the Government’s aim to ‘mainstream’ motorcycling.
Motorcycles and scooters provide the ideal solution for commuters seeking a genuine door-to-door solution and especially so for low paid key workers. Where public transport does not serve their needs and cycling is not a practical option, PTWs provide the only realistic alternative for those seeking personal mobility.
PTWs are part of the solution, not the problem, in easing traffic congestion and should be encouraged, not discouraged.
As well as being economical, PTWs with their efficient use of space do not cause congestion, are able to filter through congestion where it does take place and then occupy less space for parking. They are environmentally friendly, comply with current European emission limits and, coupled with their ability to avoid dense traffic, pollute far less than slow moving four-wheeled traffic.
