[Cyclelicious] New comment on Top bike theft cities.

Donna T. has left a new comment on your post "Top bike theft cities":

P. Squiddy - you are absolutely right - more bikes = more theft by virtue that there are more bikes to steal. This is why theft numbers are so high on college campuses, too. There are a ton of bikes on campuses around the world. Thieves know this and target those areas.

You are also right that a lot of bikes are not locked or not locked properly. That's the whole point of doing the list - to draw some attention to what can happen if you don't lock and lock properly. Anything that gets people thinking about securing their bike is a good thing. We want everyone to keep what is theirs and just piss off thieves all over the place.

Fritz - thanks for helping to pass the word about properly locking!
