The Public Safety Committee will discuss the proposed bike attachment ordinance and revisions to the registration ordinance at 5:00 pm today in the Police Academy (1202 W. Graham Street). Please tell us what you think.
The term “dead bikes” describes what people seen when a bicycle frame is left chained to a bike rack for months on end or a vandalized bike with tires smashed and mangled is left to rot locked to a pole along a sidewalk. It is bicycle blight and can take up valuable walking space and clutters up the already small amount of proper bike parking spaces in Richmond.
How can you tell when a bike is dead? Do you report it to the police? Can the bike owner be ticketed? How can one get a bike removed? It isn’t easy and can be very confusing, right?
