Seriously...how many bikes need to get stolen before a single video camera goes up?
Will Munny October 31, 2013 at 10:03 AM
Please....no more cameras. Unless someone is monitoring the camera 24/7 and is also able to dispatch a police officer within 1-2 minutes the cameras will be ineffective. A simple hooded sweatshirt and scarf can easily defeat a camera.

I would love to ride my bike to the train but I know it won't be there when I return. What about planting bikes with tracking devices at the station? This has worked in other areas. http://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/Thief-Makes-Quick-Work-of-NBC4s-Locked-Bike-218001401.html

Lancers, that is a sensible solution!
Will Munny October 31, 2013 at 04:18 PM
@Lancers,I like that idea...that sounds like it could help.
