Hoboken Legal Beagle – 12/4/2008
Today’s question is from an annoyed resident and a pesky bike locked to their fence.
What is the best approach to those bikes?
I guess this would be a question for the Legal Beagle. Some people chain up their bikes to my fence. What legal action can I take to prevent this? I have tried the HPD but they offer no solutions. Thanks for your help.”

Interesting question but I know of no legal approach to the problem.
Mano a mano, I would buy a lock and lock up their bike to the fence, so that when they came back to get their bike they would have to call the police, who most likely would offer no solution. Being hoisted by your own petard, is not a pleasant feeling and I am pretty sure, once their bike was freed, they would no longer consider your fence as their fence.
