“Theft of unattended property has always been the biggest issue, which is 100% preventable,” Martinez said. “Don’t leave your things unattended for a second. It will grow legs and it will vanish.”
The purpose of the event was to raise educate and promote mobility safety, whether by driving a car, walking down the street or riding a bike.
“I found that the practice of recycling these abandoned bikes is a sensible solution and serves our community,” said Martinez. “My goal is to continue recycling abandoned bikes via these sales and hopefully have students get in the habit of donating them as they graduate.”
