Use the rikaichan popup dictionary or your favorite reference tool with my transcription below the photos if you need help reading this poster. It’s one of two I noticed that were produced by Kyoto’s Doshisha University to encourage students to protect their bicycles against theft and be more attentive while riding.

I’ll highlight the other poster in the next kanji kanban post.  This one, focused on deterring bicycle thieves, recommends using a u-lock or similar, substantial second lock in addition to the one that many bicycles come equipped with, since those are easily broken.  Typically, bicycles aren’t locked to anything in Japan when they’re parked on the street or in lots, and bicycle theft has become more and more of a problem. It’s often a crime of convenience, because owners get lazy, sometimes neglecting to use even the standard lightweight wheel lock that’s depicted in the upper circle in the poster.

Click on the photo to enlarge it and see the characters more clearly. My neighbor Mrs. Masuda had some cement poured in front of her house the other day and the workmen put this sign up when they finished.  You can probably guess what it says even if you can’t read the characters.
