Bicycles to be chained

Bicycles to be chained

(Editor's note: Senior Vice President William R. Dickson, chairman of the Committee on Safety, last week addressed the following notice to members of the MIT community.)

As of Dec. 11, any bicycle found attached to an exterior handrail will have a Campus Police chain and lock attached to it and will be ticketed. In order to obtain the release of the bicycle, the owner will have to go to the Campus Police Headquarters and pay a fine of $25.00 (the same fine imposed for parking a motor vehicle in an MIT parking space designated for use by the handicapped.) The Campus Police lock will then be removed. If any bicycle is not claimed within 24 hours, the locking device will be cut and the bicycle impounded. In this case, the fine that must be paid before a bicycle can be retrieved will by $50.00.
