Child’s Improvised Anti-Theft Device

[Photograph of the chained up scooter]I WAS STROLLED THROUGH SHAWLANDS WHEN I CAME ACROSS THIS CHILD’S SCOOTER PARKED BY THE ROADSIDE.

Clearly the child was aware of theft and had taken measures to secure the scooter, using a cable and the church railings. It is clear that the cable was usually stored in the wee pink bag fitted to the handlebars.

So there it was all carefully locked up, except that it would extremely simple to remove the cable and take the scooter. My heart went out to this little girl who took a degree of care in parking and attempting to secure her wee pink scooter.  I do hope no-one actually does steal it.

Things are getting worse when such small children are even aware of theft, and I can only imagine that this little girl has some experience.  She does not want her scooter stolen, but, when you look at the scooter, there is very little that can be done to secure it.  She’s done her best, but really an eyelet ought to be part of the design.

    I doubt that wee pink scooters were ever meant to be parked up…:-)
