Freeway vs. Highway Explained – “Our Street is Not a Highway!” – But, Oh Yes, It Is – San Mateo Update

Here’s some of the inventory:

Some bike thieves are homeless and some aren’t. I mean, if you have an unregistered RV filled with stolen bicycles, are you homeless? IDK.

Some are quite industrious:

Oh no, we’ve headed too far to the west, so we’re out of the chop shop zone:

If you want to see for yourself, start at Costco and then head west under the freeway…
