Reduce Motorcycle Theft

Petition details

Kia ora koutou, I would like the Council to consider options for improving the security of motorbikes parked in the Wellington CBD. One practical option is to install anchor points for locks in high risk parks, which could be done cost effectively by the Council's contractors.

Background information

Motorcycle theft is a serious and common issue in Wellington. It's common to see several motorcycles reported stolen on rider groups each week, usually taken in broad daylight from the CBD. Motorcycles are a low-emissions commuting option that have been shown to reduce congestion. I believe that investing in motorcycle infrastructure is a great way to Get Wellington Moving.
