Free parking in Austin, TX for all motorcycle, scooters, motorized 2 wheelers...

As of today, June 22nd all motorized 2 wheelers will no longer be required to pay for metered parking in Austin, Texas. The city is changing their meters to a new electronic system to allow payment to be made at meters via credit/debit, or by purchasing a monthly/annual sticker. Since motorized 2 wheelers have no way to secure the sticker the city has decided to allow free parking at all metered spots. This is also to encourage alternative means of transportation other than cars. Good news.

Being a fellow texan, I can appreciate this for when the next time I visit austin. However, the registration sticker on your license plate cannot be secured either. Why not get rid of that too?
