[Images taken 26.5.23] Deangate, York. The cycle with the trailer projects a minimum of 64cm further into the road than the others. (Compare with: #194419.) These racks are at the entrance to a nursery (Little Green Rascals Yet they are not protected (example of effective protection: #184753) and neither are the youngsters while waiting to get in/on, be loaded/unloaded, nor the adults while organising children or parking the cycle. Deangate is subject to a constant stream of motor vehicles despite the street behind the camera being a dead end albeit with space to turn round. Food collection drivers, taxi drivers, delivery drivers, lost tourists, drivers with blue badge permits for parking, residents picking up dependants or friends... ...and parents dropping off and picking up children from this nursery in cars. The racks are also popular with families at other times too. And as larger, longer and wider cycles are proliferating, I'd like to see protected provision made for people who can and do, and those who could and would, cycle rather than drive to this nursery or this location for other reasons. The parent whose trailer this is suggested moving the racks further out so people with longer rigs could park parallel to the pavement and between it and the racks. Would CYC reallocate more space to people cycling and put in parallel racks (see: #184832, #191037) though with sufficient space for both sides to be used? If the racks were sufficiently well spaced, people with heavier designs or more heavily laden cycles or who themselves need more manoeuvring space, could 'wheel in' and 'wheel forward' to get out rather than having to make multiple tiny changes of position and/or lift the cycle.
