Cracking Down on Bike Theft

I hope that what we’ve seen in the past couple of days with Toronto Police recovering thousands of stolen bikes is more of a trend than just a one-time event. There are several obstacles to more people cycling as a means of transportation including safety and weather, but surely theft is a major concern for cyclists. If we desire the benefits of increased use of cycling as transportation for our city (reduced pollution, reduced congestion, better health), we need to see more efforts like this one to shut down theft operations.
