Scooter Thefts on Rise

There has been a large amount of scooter thefts in the areas around Linnwood, Oakland Ave., Kenilworth Square, Van Buren, Park Pl, Maryland ave. and E. Hamilton. Please lock your scooter to a fixed object to prevent someone from lifting it and stealing your property.

How to Secure Your Scooter

Always take the time to properly lock your scooter. For maximum security protection, Kryptonite recommends using two locks such as a Kryptonite Security Chain AND a U-Lock or Disc Lock. The Kryptonite chain is placed around a fixed, immovable object and through the frame or the floor board area of the scooter to prevent against lift-away theft. In addition, use a Kryptonite disc lock or u-lock on the rotor of the scooter to prevent against roll-away theft. Two security devices equal more protection and more time for a thief to have to work!

Helpful lock-up tips:

  1. Always lock your scooter including at home- whether in a garage, outdoor shed, in your yard, or a parking garage.
  2. Don’t lock your scooter in the same location all the time – thieves notice patterns
  3. Thieves go for the easiest target: lock in a location where there are other vehicles if you have the option
  4. Be sure that your Kryptonite chain cannot be lifted over the seat or the handlebar area when locked.
