Steal this Bike

AmsterdamBike.jpgAmsterdam Police are taking a proactive approach to nicking bike theives by use of GPS emitters of some sort. Hopefully this approach to theft prevention will be effective. On the other hand, maybe the bike isn't neccessary, as one stupid bloke proved by stealing a GPS emmitter designed for house arrest.

Now I wonder if we can find some cheap GPS emitters for bikes at Burning Man. Every year I hear rumors of trucks being filled with stolen bikes on the night of the burn. Maybe the police force would even be up for helping. I hope they're not only interested in sex and drugs.
