The inspiration for this idea was a couple parking chairs set out on Wightman Street this morning. It didn’t seem to make sense at first glance — no one saves parking in the summer because no one has to shovel out their spot to park there. On second glance, the chairs were placed on a corner where the curb was painted yellow for no parking. So someone in the neighborhood apparently tired of people parking on corners, limiting visibility. A great solution to this problem would be to make those parking chairs useful — how about a parking chair-shaped bike rack for corners along the lines of the video below? It’d make a nice statement that everyone should respect, showing that bikes have as much cultural history in Pittsburgh as parking chairs do.
