Stage bicycle theft stings.

Strategy 5.6.4 Details

Chapter 5Education: Education is a key component to achieving the Bike 2015 Plan's goals to increase the number of trips by bicycle and improve the safety of the bicycling environment. Many people think that bicycling in Chicago is dangerous. This concern keeps people from bicycling more, or at all. A key way to address this concern is through education, particularly through the six objectives identified in this chapter.
Objective 6Reduce the incidence of bicycle theft through education and enforcement.

Strategy 4

Stage bicycle theft stings.

Test equipping bicycles with hidden Global Positioning System (GPS) transmitters and receivers to trace thieves. This is an effective, relatively inexpensive way to locate professional bicycle thieves. Combine with media outreach on how to prevent bicycle theft. If successful, stage on an annual basis.
