Q about scooter parking

Can a foreigner buy...? Can a foreigner rent...? What about deposits? Bad neighbors? Unreasonable landlords? Miscellaneous problems?

Yeah, I thought of attempting to clone the remaining one, but usually they have a rolling code encryption. I already asked them if I can just buy another key. Basically, it's a scam to make sure if you have two scooters, you buy two spaces - which is daft, because there aren't enough spaces for everyone. Which is why people (not just me) put two scooters in one box.

The sensible thing would be for them to re-draw narrower scooter boxes and rent them at a somewhat lower price ... thus making more money while keeping everyone happy. But 'sensible' and 'petty bureaucrat' usually don't appear in the same sentence.

I think the passive-aggressive approach (bothering the security guard) might be the simplest option. Failing that I can always slide the scooter under the barrier...

Aah, you have a boom gate kind of thing? just saw the last meter off.
The prizes are a bottle of f*!@#$% SCOTCH and a box of cheap f!@#$#$ CIGARS!

Too many people! Almost all of the world's problems are due to overpopulation. The rest are due to religion.
