Safer Transport


  • Always lock your bike, even if you are leaving it for just a few seconds
  • Attach the lock through the frame and to a strong structure that is fixed to the ground
  • We recommend using two ‘Sold Secure’ D locks – visit the Sold Secure website for more information about security tested products
  • If you can, lock the bike in well-lit areas with lots of people walking by and also in view of CCTV
  • Mark your property with your postcode and register it on


  • Lock all doors, windows and the sunroof whenever you leave the vehicle, even if it’s just a few minutes
  • Never leave anything on display or in your glove box – even if it’s not valuable – this is the first place thieves will check
  • Remember thieves hate crook locks
  • If your bike, car or any valuables are stolen – report it to West Midlands Police by calling 101
