Even parking on the streets of that country in your own neighborhood, now costs money.
Background story: To park a car or motorcycle on the street of your own neighborhood, you pay a yearly fee of app. $100.
There are two problems, though:
1) When parking a solo bike amongst cars, one risks it being knocked over.
2) If one wants to park a second vehicle on the street too, the price is app. $150 per month
Obviously the law should at least have had a provision for people who have a car and a motorcycle, as the latter most often is used just for leisure.
Anyway, this is how Kim (great guy and frequent correspondent) adapted and innovated his way around the law.. so that it's actually a bicycle with a large cargo rack parking for free.
PS it took two weeks to build the bike, and the parking enforcement have conceeded defeat
Kim used the comments section to give a bit more explanation about the motorcycle on a cargo bicycle, but since not many people read the comments, I'll add it here for clarification,
Kim says: I live in a country with high taxes, and that I never complain about that. Taxes are the price we pay for civilization, and as long as the money is spent in a proper fashion, I'm ok with making my contribution.
The circumstances leading to building the transport tricycle involve a city government trying to promote car-sharing, bicycling and public transport, presumably to ease pollution and traffic congestion.
Unfortunately the city government does not acknowledge these advantages to motorcycles, much less take into account of the handful of individuals like me, who has six old reg'd motorcycles to my name. Hence the unusual solution for my solo bikes - the sidecar one lives on the street and pays for it.
