Cambridge & MBTA Police Holding “Stand-Out” in Central Square Today to Prevent Bike Theft & Promote Bicycle Safety

August 11, 2010 – Join MBTA and Cambridge Police this afternoon for a “Stand Out” in Central Square from 4:30 – 6:30PM.
Members of the MBTA and Cambridge Police will be stationed at T locations in Central Square to provide tips on personal safety, bike safety, and theft prevention to citizens and bicyclists.
Police will also be available to answer citizens’ questions and provide information on Massachusetts bicycle laws, proper use of hand signals while riding, instructions on how to lock bikes correctly, etc. People will also be instructed on how to register their bicycles with local law enforcement in the event that they are lost or stolen.
Similar “Stand Outs” have been held at Alewife, Porter, and Kendall T Stations, and police hope that they will have similar success tonight in Central Square.
