Six tips to keep your farm quad bike safe from thieves #RuralCrime

In the early hours of Tuesday, June 28, thieves attempted to take a quad bike from a secure outbuilding in the Conistone area, and later at another property in the Buckden area.

 

Fortunately, the thieves were unsuccessful and it is thought in both cases the perpetrators were disturbed by existing security measures.

 

PCSO Sally Breen, of North Yorkshire Police’s Rural Taskforce, said: “I am urging anyone who owns a quad bike – and particularly if they live in a rural area – to take extra steps to ensure their vehicles
are left safe and secure.

“It’s far better to spend some time and money now on quality security measures than to go through
the inconvenience and upset of having your vehicle stolen.”

 

North Yorkshire Police have encouraged quad bike owners to take additional action to secure their
vehicles:

 

1. Park as close to your premises as possible, ideally in a locked outbuilding with CCTV and
security lighting, preferably out of sight from nearby roads

 

2. Remove keys when not in use, and do not leave them near the vehicle

 

3. Fit wheel clamps and/or locking posts, and consider an alarm

4. Mark or customise your vehicle so it is easily identifiable

 

5. Consider fitting GPS tracking devices for high-value vehicles

 

6. Keep a record of all vehicles, including photographs and serial numbers
