List of secure bicycle parking areas
A sucker pole is a pole that appears to be safe to lock a bike to, but can easily be dismantled by bicycle thieves. In the U.S. city of Chicago, 252 bicycles were stolen in the year 2012 in this manner. According to Cyclelicious, such poles are never secured to the base and thus making these vehicles easy targets. Another source says thieves can easily take the parked bike in as few as "10 seconds" and still be in plain view in daylight.
