An "angry and frustrated" St. Louis mayor Francis Slay is responding to last weekend's rash of car break-ins with proposed new rules for the owners of downtown lots.
Vandals broke into at least 60 cars in the downtown St. Louis area Friday night, stealing purses and GPS units. Police say there were no attendants at some of the lots to report the crimes. And Slay wants that to stop.
The City of St. Louis has taken steps to become friendlier for bike commuters.
The new downtown St. Louis Bike Station opens on Thursday. The project was funded through a $180,000 grant from the Department of Energy.
The project is currently administered through the Partnership for Downtown St. Louis but will eventually be handed off to Trailnet.
Maggie Campbell is the President of the Partnership for Downtown St. Louis. She says the site will offer a full range of services for bike commuters.
