This is one for the bikers. A couple of weeks ago I had a work meeting at one of the conference theatres above @ Bristol. I parked my bike near the building and chained it to a post. When I parked I saw a clamping sign on the other side of some bollards, in a pedestrian area, so I purposefully parked on the road side of the bollards and chained my bike to the only post in the area to make it more secure. When I came out of the meeting later I saw that they had clamped my bike, the cnuts. Not only that but they charged me Â£68.25 to release it, the same release fee as a car. As you can see in the pictures, it wasn't blocking the pavement or restricting anyone's movements. This is the first time I've ever seen a bike clamped, I didn't even know they did clamps for bikes. The best bit was when I rang up and they said they were going to tow it in half an hour, so they were blatantly saying they were going to cut through my chain. If any bikers have to go to @ Bristol, don't try and park anywhere near it.
