A photo of two bicycles trapped for disabled seats on a train in Melbourne has a shared view.
A man riding a Frankston line train made the image of a row of reserved seats folded to fit the bikes and posted it on Facebook on Saturday.
& # 39; Two bicycles locked in a handicapped seat on the train. My opinion that they should not be allowed, what do you think? & # 39; He wrote.

Many members of the Australian Disability Parking Wall of Shame, a group shamed of able-bodied motorists for using disabled parking, found the owner's actions disrespectful.
& # 39; Inconsiderate a holes! & # 39; said one.
Another added: & # 39; So wrong. & # 39;
& # 39; Must be fined. Disabled people are treated as nonsense as usual, & a man wrote.
Others believed that the riders were entitled to use the space when it was not occupied.
One woman wrote: & # 39; There is nothing wrong with cycling there, because they have to go there. & # 39;
& # 39; As long as it is moved, I have no problem. In addition, there is more than one seat for the disabled. Take a cold pill, & a man added.

Another stated in conformity: & # 39; Not against the law to place the bikes there unless it is necessary for disabled access. & # 39;
The man who took the photo said no one admitted ownership when he asked passengers, but social media users quickly saw the helmet next to a commuter.
According to Public Transport Victoria, bicycles are allowed on trains as long as they are not on board the first door of the first carriage reserved for travelers with reduced mobility.
