Vandals smash bike lane lights on Syracuse University campus

Broken light on University Avenue

Vandals have smashed almost half of the 43 bike lane lights recently installed at Syracuse University.

The waist-high red posts topped with lighting globes line University Avenue, which runs into the campus. The Post-Standard of Syracuse reports that they were installed in recent months at a cost of $1,100 each.

Nineteen of the 43 lights were broken as of this week.

Syracuse University officials say they're working to deter further vandalism.
