    Default Help prevent bike theft

    I got sent this link today at work. It is being pushed In the ACT as part of the lock it or lose anti bike theft campaign. First time I have heard of it as I think it is fairly new. Great initiative to help prevent bike theft and to assist Police in locating stolen bikes and returning the them to the owners. http://www.nationalbikeregister.com.au

    This scheme was around over 40 years ago in Sydney. It really made no difference if I recall correctly, as in the grand scheme of things not too many bikes get stolen.

    Why do I get the feeling that it is just another feel good program?

    There are a lot more bikes around now than there was 40 years ago and the value of those bikes is much greater too. I don't think you can say because a scheme didn't work 40 years ago is really justification to say it won't now.
    It's only a mistake if you don't learn from it.

    Perhaps it's the sceptic in me, however let's revisit this topic in 5 years or so, and see what the results are?
