Subject: This email is regarding my violation in displaying advertisement inside the xxxxxxx residence using my personal bicycle.


I would like to ask to the board to treat my bike as you treat my car, allowing my bike to display my advertisement from Monday to Friday from 8am to 6pm for the following reasons:

1)      I use/need my bike to run my business. I run it daily to pick up of laptops/desktops as long as the weather allow me.
2)      I use my bike to advertise my services.
3)     I have been using the bike to run my business for over a year now, and residents and clients outside the Resident are pleased with    my service.
4)      If the weather condition allow me I definitely prefer run my business using the bike rather than a car. It’s healthier, cheaper and helps the environment to stay green.

Having said that, I am asking the board of directors to  let me keep using my bike for business. To avoid incurring again in violation with the xxxxxxxx policies  I have created a cover for my box (see attached image) that I will obscure the advertisement after 6pm, until 8am and on Saturday and Sunday.

Thank you for your understanding,

I am asking the board to treat my bicycle the same as you treat my car, allowing my bicycle to display my advertisement Monday to Friday from 8am to 6pm for the following reasons:

1. I need my bicycle to run my business. It is used daily to pick up computers for repair, weather permitting.
2.  I use my bicycle to advertise my services.
3. I have been using the bicycle to run my business for over a year now, and residents and clients outside the Resident are pleased with my service.
4. When the weather allows, using the bicycle is healthier, cheaper, reduces car traffic and helps the environment.

I ask that board of directors continues to allow me to use my bicycle for these purposes. To avoid incurring another violation, I have created a cover for my bicycle (see attached image) that will obscure the advertisement after 6pm, until 8am and on Saturday and Sunday.

Thank you for understanding.
Sincerely,

Using my Bicycle for Commercial Purposes

(My Address)

To whom may concern,                                                              xxxxxxxxxxx, VA 4/9/2015

On April 1, 2015, I received a citation for violating a city ordinance (#xxxxxx) by displaying an advertisement attached to my bicycle.

I am asking that the board permit me to use my bicycle for commercial purposes from Monday to Friday between 8 am and 6 pm for the following reasons:

1) I use my bicycle on an ongoing regular basis for the transportation needs of my business.
2) The computers and technology-related equipment which I carry for my business are relatively small and do not mandate the use of a large motorized vehicle.
3) Information about my business is displayed on my bicycle.  
4) It is important that information about my business be displayed on my bicycle because this information informs my customers as well as the general public about the nature and purpose of by travel and business.
5) I am not paid by any third-party to display any information on my bicycle.
6) I am not asking other people to display information about my business on their bicycles.
7) I have used my bicycle for business purposes for more than a year and I have never received a single complaint from any customer or member of the general public related to the use of my bicycle.
8) My bicycle is an economical and environmentally responsible form of transportation.
9) Many of my customers have told me that they are pleased I choose to use a bicycle.

A law which permits motorized vehicles to participate in commercial activities while prohibiting bicycles from participating in commercial activities unfairly discriminates against those who cannot afford motorized vehicles. Furthermore, information about a bicycle's manufacturer is allowed to be displayed on a bicycle. It is inconsistent that it is permitted for my bicycle to display information about a third-party manufacturer's business while it cannot display information about my own business.

For these reasons, I am asking the board of directors to allow me to use my bicycle for business purposes.  When operating my bicycle for personal purposes outside of the time between 8 am and 6 pm, Monday to Friday, I will cover the business-related information (see attached image).

Thank you for your understanding and consideration of this matter.

Sincerely,

Italiabella
