A Type of City Breed: Bike Thieves

The city saw a 26 percent increase in commuter cyclists just between 2008 and 2009 alone. An increase in commuter bikes sheds light on the prevalence of bike theft. A most recent example is the New York City Bike Bandit taking advantage of city cyclists.

As New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the Department of Transportation continue to expand the city’s bike network, the problem of bicycle theft needs to be examined closely.

    The 1st thing Mr Bloomberg & DOT need to do, is stop WASTING MILLIONS (of our tax dollars) ripping up good streets and start repairing streets that are in DESPERATE need of repair!

    But until “everyone” makes complaints, they will continue WASTING & only pointing out when they do something good!

    Here is a good link to start making complaints:

    At the end of the video: REGISTRY is misspelled. DUH!
