Bike Safety


CommunityService Organization (CSO) officers are responsible for ensuringbicycle safety and maintaining the bicycle registration program.

Bicycle theft is a growing concern on campus, but can easily beprevented by using effective locks and locking practices, and throughbicycle registration. CSO officers recommend using a U-shaped shacklelock combined with a cable lock, as well as locking the bicycle to adesignated rack, rather than to itself. Bicycle registration, which is required by campusregulations, dramatically increases the recovery rate of stolenbicycles.

CSO officers are also responsible for bicycle safety education, andbicycle violation citations. If bicycles are illegally parked, acitation may be issued. Additionally, verbal warnings or citations maybe issued if students are inappropriately using the bike paths orpotentially causing danger to other students. The most commoninfractions are riding on the sidewalk, two people riding one bike,riding with no hands, and skateboarding or walking on the bike path.
