Crime Prevention Tip:

Many bicycle lock companies are starting to sell cables with their u-locks. If the cable is simply looped through the various parts of your bicycle and looped to the u-lock, then all a thief needs to do is break the u-lock and unthread the cable. For greater security, make sure your cable lock is secured independently from your u-lock. Make the thief defeat two locks instead of just one. Also, this theft occurred during the day. Do not believe your bicycle is secure simply because you only have it on campus during the day.

Crime Prevention Tip:

Why not invest a quarter to secure your property in the weight room while you work out. The victim in this case lost approximately $330.00 because he could not spend twenty-five cents. If you can secure it in a locker, then you should limit what you bring to the gym.
