Abandoned bicycles in police possession, 1960. That year, the police began a drive to get owners to license their bikes — to “thwart thefts,” according to our local daily. “Owners of unlicensed bicycles may be cited.” The cost for a tag, valid for ten years, was one dollar. Four days into the campaign, 1700 licenses had been sold (the number of bicycles in San Diego was estimated at 20,000).
