Target Removal

Target removal takes the target away from the crime situation, beyond the offender’s sight or reach – it might be as simple as making sure, even in your own home, that your bike is not easy to find or remove.

In terms of bike parking in public space, folding bikes have the advantage, in as much they fold down small enough to allow you to take them inside of most destinations you cycle to, thus removing the necessity to park on the street for long periods, where theft is more likely.
