Smile, you're on CCTV

This bike rack is on Cotham Hill, outside Films@59 -I think it was something they had to put in to get consent on a planning application

It's popular, and has CCTV coverage to give your bike the illusion of security. There's even a sign on the window, "Smile, you're on CCTV" to remind people. Unfortunately, the staff tell us that when they've seen bike thefts/attempted bike thefts on the CCTV and called it in, nobody has bothered to come round. Which means even with CCTV coverage, your bike isn't safe here.

One way to make Bristol a Cycling City is not just make it somewhere where people feel safe to cycle around, but somewhere where you feel safe to leave your bike parked.
