破壞行為迫使萊斯特四個電動自行車站被拆除

一個委員會說,公共電動自行車出租計劃的停靠站在被破壞者多次破壞後不得不被拆除。

萊斯特市議會說,今年早些時候安裝的四個站點,在自行車被人從碼頭上扯下來之後,現在已經被拆除了。

市議會的一位女發言人說。"遺憾的是,這些停靠站在夏季和秋季成為持續破壞行為的目標,自行車被從停靠站中扳開,損壞了充電和控制單元。

"整個城市都有停靠站,但在反覆發生破壞行為的情況下,我們別無選擇,只能將自行車和停靠站遷移到其他地區。

市政府副市長亞當-克拉克說。"在生活成本危機期間,特別令人痛心的是,一種旨在使每個人都能安全和方便地出行的低成本、零排放的公共交通工具成為這種自私和無意識的破壞行為的目標。

"我們的目標是在我們所有的社區提供電動自行車,但在反覆發生破壞行為的地方,運營商不得不轉移電動自行車,以避免面臨不可持續的成本。

"我們將繼續努力支持這個地方的其他公共交通選擇,並與萊斯特郡警方合作,以識別和阻止那些進行這種破壞的人。"

萊斯特郡警方的一位發言人說。"任何形式的破壞行為都會造成極大的損害,在這種情況下,它使許多人無法使用這個使用良好的交通設施。

"我們一直鼓勵任何目擊者或有關於這些破壞行為的信息的人向警方報告此事,以便對其進行全面調查。"


Docking stations for a public e-bike hire scheme have had to be removed after being repeatedly damaged by vandals, a council has said.

Leicester City Council said four stations, installed earlier this year, have now been taken out after bikes were wrenched from their docks.

A city council spokeswoman said: "Sadly, these docking stations have been the target of sustained attacks of vandalism over the summer and autumn, with bikes wrenched from their docks, damaging the charging and control units.

"Docking stations are available throughout the city but where repeated vandalism occurs, there is no choice but to relocate the bikes and stations to other areas.

Deputy city mayor Adam Clarke said: "During a cost of living crisis, it is particularly galling that a form of low-cost, zero-emission public transport designed to enable everyone to get around safely and conveniently has been the target of this selfish and mindless vandalism.

"We aim to offer e-bikes in all our neighbourhoods but where there is repeated vandalism the operator has to move the e-bikes so as not to face unsustainable costs.

"We will continue to work to support other public transport options in this local area and work with Leicestershire Police to identify and deter those who carry out such destruction."

A Leicestershire Police spokesperson said: "Vandalism of any kind can be extremely damaging and in these case it has left many people without the use of this well-used transport facility.

"We would always encourage anyone who witnesses or has any information about these acts of vandalism to report the matter to the police so it can be fully investigated."
