Bike Theft in Pacific Beach: How to Protect Yourself

Many bikes in Pacific Beach are being stolen.  Using sturdy locks and common sense are important, but if you’re a theft victim anyway, there’s one thing you must do to get your bike back.

And you have to do it now.

According to the San Diego Police, the only way a recovered bike can be returned to you is if you have a record of the bike’s serial number. Most bike serial numbers are on the bottom bracket from which the pedal cranks protrude.  Just turn the bike upside-down and record the number.  If it’s not there, look around the frame.  If you can’t find a serial number anywhere, an alternate method is to have your driver’s license number engraved on the frame.

Keep the number in a safe place and provide it to police if you’re the unfortunate victim of a bike theft.

Public Comment Invited on Parking Meters

Discover PB is switching the March 10th Parking Advisory Committee meeting location to the PB Rec Center, located 1405 Diamond Street (the room is facing Gresham). Time and date is still March 10th at 6pm. They are trying to accommodate for public comment.

The “hot topic” is the discussion on parking meters and parking permits within the community. Naturally, there’s some who are vocally opposed, even though the discussion is in early stages.

The discussion is too important for the community to miss. The best plan must include broader community discussion and input. Parking and Traffic are impacting us all. Devising a strategic plan for the entire community is exciting, daunting and poses an opportunity for significant improvement for all.
