Join the fight against scooter crime

The Capital’s riders are once again being encouraged to join the fight against scooter related crime by reducing the risk of their bike being stolen.

As part of its ‘Lock, chain, cover’ campaign, the Met Police has released a new animated video – ‘The Life of a Stolen Scooter’.

The video shows how a stolen scooter can be used to commit multiple crimes around London affecting several victims. 

The video ends with the use of tactical contact and officers asking members of the public to lock, chain and cover their bikes to make their vehicles more secure.

Launched in 2018, the ‘Lock, chain, cover’ aims to remind bike owners of the importance of using all three methods to protect their vehicles and deter moped enabled crimes in London.

The new video has been released in advance of the Carole Nash MCN Motorbike Show, which takes place at the ExCel from 14-16 February.
