Motorcyclists watch out!

by Amanda Taylor on 7 August, 2017

The Cambridgeshire Constabulary report, via e-cops, that they have received five reports of motorcycle thefts in Cambridge this month so far.  They would like to take this opportunity to warn other motorcycle/moped owners other these thefts and to encourage crime prevention measures.

Motorbikes

There are plenty of ways you can help to keep your motorbike safe:

* Always lock your bike and set its alarm if it has one

* Try to use a designated motorcycle parking place with a stand and security loop

* When leaving your bike for some time, try to lock it to something secure. At home, you can fit special attachments to lock your bike to

* Use a motorbike cover

* Have the motorbike marked with its vehicle identification number (VIN)

* Don’t leave items such as helmets or other possessions with your bike

* Think about where you park – try to park where there are lots of people passing, good lighting and CCTV

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or visit www.contactcambspolice.uk/report http://www.contactcambspolice.uk/report . Alternatively, contact Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111 or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org http://www.crimestoppers-uk.org/
