LEIDEN – Removal crews in Leiden pick up wrongly parked and abandoned bicycles routinely from the area around Leiden’s railway station. Annually, the crews bring about 5,000 of these two wheelers to the city’s warehouse where the owners can retrieve them for a fee. Until now, all bikes were photographed and numbered for the city’s catalogue system. Soon, photographs of newly picked up bicycles may be accessed online for viewing, the city recently announced. Leiden’s bicycle removal policy has its critics who are challenging the bylaw with policy makers.
