Hopefully these sights will be a little fewer as Stockholm spends money on bike garages like the one below!

Stockholm’s Newest Parking Garage Only For Bikes. 700 bike spots, lockers, and showers—only for bikes.

“The city of the future is not one built around the car as a means of transportation,” says Roger Mogert, city planning commissioner for Stockholm. “This requires that we make it easier to travel by bike, and of course arranging for safe and efficient parking solutions is on step towards that goal.”

The garage is designed from the ground up for cyclists. Instead of doors with handles, entrances will automatically slide open, so cyclists can ride in directly from the adjacent bike path or street. The plan is to include bike repair and changing rooms where cyclists can shower, dress for work, and leave their helmets in lockers.
