San Francisco has big plans to crackdown on bike theft, aiming to reduce thefts by 50 percent by August 2018. As bike ridership increases across San Francisco bike theft is spreading like wildfire, which prompted the Board of Supervisors to introduce an anti-bike theft resolution this past March. Expected to be approved by October 1, 2013, the resolution also plans to expand bike parking, adding 1,000 new racks across the city within the next two years. Read the full story here.

Nearly two years ago, Mission Local reported that bike thefts in the Mission District ranked as the highest across the entire Bay Area, according to an analysis of Craigslist postings.
