Or not, according to U-M Public Safety. As I was about to leave I discovered this noticed circled around my handlebars. It's the first time I'd ever seen one, so it took me a minute to realize that it's not actually a citation, but rather a notice that they would have impounded my bike if I didn't move in in 48 hours. Obviously that wasn't an issue, but I was fairly irritated at the prospect of it. Yes, it was parked illegally - but it wasn't in anyone's way (I would argue), and it's not like I had much of a choice. A better solution would be to install more bike stands, no? Or maybe catch the person who's allegedly been committing sexual assault? Maybe that's not quite fair, but the idea of a "watch out in 48 hours!" citation does seem to be a non-productive solution.
