    Alexandria(VA) Bike Registration

    I just heard on the radio, that the city council may scrap the requirement, because it is so old and, it is only $0.25

    That's interesting. I think I've always heard, the purpose of registration is to facilitate recovering stolen bicycles. But I don't think I've ever seen say statistics/studies on how effective that is.

    I don't know why I thought it would do any good. I registered my bike with the county. But while it has never been stolen, I doubt I would ever see it again.
