SEATTLE -- The Seattle Department of Transportation wants bikeshare users to make sure the brake lines haven't been cut before jumping on.

SDOT said on Wednesday that they've received multiple reports that bikes in the city have had brakes vandalized.

Transportation officials said they were working with bikeshare companies SPIN, LimeBike and Ofo to notify users of the potential danger.

SPIN sent a safety advisory email to its Seattle customers:

 We have received reports of brake lines being cut on Spin bikes in the downtown Seattle area.

Safety tips:
-Before riding, check to see if any wires have been cut
-Test your brakes once you have gotten onto the bike

Bikeshare users who discover bikes that have been tampered with should report them in their app immediately.
