  1. Most students don’t usually know where to turn to after been sexually assaulted. The app to helping students concerning their security is worthy. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Three things:

    1. The bike in the picture is NOT locked up properly. The lock should also secure the front wheel so it’s not stolen. Delete the photo.
    2. BUPD says not wearing a helmet is “dangerous and foolish?” That’s comical. What’s dangerous and foolish is the BUPD completely ignoring the hundreds of cars and trucks that illegally block the Comm Ave bikes lanes every day. Biking on its own is not very dangerous, it’s only dangerous when bikes mix with cars. This mixing is significantly increased around BU as when it comes to bike safety, the BUPD is just talk. Some enforcement would be nice.
    3. It’s absolutely NOT illegal to ride a bike on most sidewalks in Boston. The BUPD should read up on the laws they are meant to be enforcing and should stop spreading lies.
