SF Supervisors to hold meeting over bike theft problem
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- San Francisco supervisors are considering measures to cut down on rising bike thefts.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports Supervisor Eric Mar has called a special hearing at City Hall Thursday night to address the problem.
Bike-stealing is up 70-percent since 2006, with 817 attempted or reported thefts in 2012. However, police think the actual number is probably five times higher.
San Francisco is considering a local voluntary bike registry or a special bike theft police unit.
