MO­TOR­BIKES and scoot­ers are cheap, fuel ef­fi­cient and easy to park. They have be­come a key tar­get for thieves. To pre­vent scooter theft, make locks vis­i­ble, be­cause deter­rence works. Al­ways use a lock and chain through a front or rear wheel to a frame or fixed ob­ject. In­stall an alarm, use a steer­ing lock and cover the scooter. When in pub­lic, leave it in full view of pass­ing pub­lic. Make sure doors and win­dows are locked when it is in a garage and hel­mets and rid­ing gear should be se­cured else­where. En­grave the frame or fit mi­crodots, and con­sider re­mov­ing the kick-starter dur­ing long pe­ri­ods. Record the scooter’s de­tails and iden­ti­fi­ca­tion num­bers. Don’t give crim­i­nals an easy ride. -Sgt War­ren Ame­duri
