200 free D locks have been distributed to local residents that rode to various events in the City of Cockburn over the past year. Local residents can complete the registration form and forward it to the council or firstname.lastname@example.org. Details provided can be useful to help reconnect owners with their bikes, if they are recovered.
D-locks are much stronger than a regular chain lock and are a much greater deterrent to thieves when used correctly. A D-lock should be used to lock the front wheel and the bike frame to the rail. Never lock just your frame or wheels. Secure any accessories such as helmets and lights, or take them with you.
Part of the project involves registering your bike details to our database by completing the form, with serial numbers, description and your contact details. This information will be retained by the City, and will be accessible by WA Police should a bicycle be recovered, to assist with identifying the owner.
You will also be given the opportunity to receive information about the City's TravelSmart scheme.
