Why should I register my bike?
If your bike is ever lost or stolen, the
West Chicago Police Department will have
all the necessary information (make,
model, colors, etc.). It will eliminate the
need for you to find the paperwork, hunt
down serial numbers, etc. The bike can
then easily be entered into the law
enforcement database.
If your bike is ever found, the owner
can quickly be located from the registration
sticker number. Thus returning your bike
to you in a speedy manner.
How do I register my bike?
To register your bike, simply
complete the registration form on the left
side of this brochure page. Bring the
completed form to the West Chicago
Police Department where you will receive
a numbered sticker that you will apply to
the registered bike.
It is highly recommended that you
complete the bicycle information on the
back of this page and attach a photograph
of the registered bike. Then keep the
paper in a safe, secure location for your
personal records.
What should I do if my bike is lost
or stolen?
If your bike is ever lost or stolen,
you should report it to your local law
enforcement agency. This way the bike’s
information can be entered into the law
enforcement database.
If you are in West Chicago when
the bike is lost or stolen, call 9-1-1
immediately!
Have all of the bike’s
information and the registration sticker
number with you to give to the responding
police officer.
Bicycle Tips
Always inspect your bicycle before you
go for a ride.
Always wear a helmet when riding a
bicycle.
Never ride more than 2 (two) people
next to each other.
Never hang onto a moving vehicle
while on a bicycle.
Always wear white and/or reflective
clothes so other bicyclists, pedestrians
and drivers can see you.
Ride your bicycle as close to the right
edge as possible.
ALWAYS ride in the same direction as
motor vehicle traffic.
Remember to obey ALL traffic laws,
signs and signals when on a bicycle.
Yield the right of way to all pedestrians.
Learn and use hand signals to be used
when turning and stopping.
Slow down at all intersections and
railroad crossings.
Avoid riding a bicycle at night time. If
you do decide to ride after dark, make
sure your bicycle has a headlight and
taillight or reflector.
Keep both hands on the handlebars at
all times, unless displaying a hand
signal.
Never ride with another person or while
carrying onto any objects (use
backpack or bicycle carrier).
ALWAYS secure your bicycle to a fixed
object with a chain and a lock.
NEVER leave your bicycle in the street,
front yard or sidewalk. Properly store it
in a garage, shed, etc.
Report any lost or stolen bicycles to the
police right away.
