Rio Approves Bill that Typifies “Bicycle Theft”

Rio-The bill that includes the classification of “theft or theft of bicycles” in Rio Civil Police records was unanimously approved by the Rio Legislative Assembly, in the second and last vote, on the afternoon of Tuesday 2.

Now the project goes to the sanction of Governor Luiz Fernando Pezão (PMDB). The vote was accelerated after the death of the doctor Jaime Gold, robbed and stabbed while pedaling around Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, in the south zone, on May 19.

To date, bicycle thefts have been recorded in a generic way, such as “robbery to the passerby”, which prevented the creation of a database with the places where these crimes are more frequent.

The project, written by deputies André Ceciliano (PT) and Martha Rocha (PSD), was based on suggestions from 40-year-old cyclist Raphael Pazos, chairman of the Committee on Safety in Cycling in the City of Rio de Janeiro.

“Robberies of bicycles have been common for at least a year, but there are no statistics to date, which will allow us to know where the thefts are concentrated and guide policing,” Pazos said before the bill was approved.

The approved project also creates the State Register of Recovered Bicycles in the State of Rio de Janeiro. This will make it easier for victims to learn about bicycles that have been found and seized by the police.

Today, according to Raphael Pazos, most of the recovered bicycles are seized by police in distant neighborhoods where robbery or theft occurred.

They are sent to the area police station and stay there, taking up space, without the owner being informed. The creation of this register must solve this problem, believes the cyclist.
