It's only been a week since Limebike launched in the Forest City and already, according to Eyewitness News, Rockford residents are abusing the bicycles.

After a fellow Rockfordian shared a photo of one of them in a tree on Facebook, it didn't take too long for someone to turn it into a meme that was making the rounds all day; creating some pretty good laughs.

Unfortunately, it's not a laughing matter. I'll admit, I laughed too, but it makes our city look bad when people treat things this way. Why would you do something like that?

Why would any of these 12 people do something like that to a bike?

Take a look at how other people around the country are ruining Limebike for the rest of us. And yes, it's ok to laugh; at least we're not alone.
