Re: Have you locked your car.

OMG they would have a field day here, so many particular in winter pull up at the shops and leave the engine running while they go in to shop , well car is warm afterwards, why should anyone want to steal it and if they did they wouldnt get far , no roads to turn off onto, and the police would stop them at some point farther along lol

Re: Have you locked your car.

A few years ago I was warned not to even leave change on view in the little slots provided in some cars for parking meter change, as some little tow rag will quite happily smash a window just for a couple of quid.

Re: Have you locked your car.

I don't lock my car, ever

She's an old girl (like me) and sometimes the locking mechanism decides not to work properly and sets the alarm off when unlocking. Not good at 6am

There's noting in it worth stealing, work clothes, change of shoes, grandkids litter,that's about it

Re: Have you locked your car.

My car locks automatically if it has been left unlocked for more than a minute, providing the keys have been removed from the ignition.

Re: Have you locked your car.

Some will steal anything. My mate came back to his car to find a window smashed. Nothing was in it worth stealing, and it took him a few days to realise what had gone. It was one of those popular toy dogs of the time that stuck to the window with suction feet. A free garage toy for a £60 window.

Re: Have you locked your car.

This happened to one of my daughterís friend.
She put several parcels in the boot of her car to post back to Amazon the next day.
Using the same method, someone stole all the parcels.

My mother was always drumming into me, never to leave money on show, as someone would break into your house or car to steal it!

Re: Have you locked your car.

Itís an offence to leave your car unattended with the engine running plus the insurance will be void if the car is stolen, same if you leave the car unlocked and it is stolen or things are stolen from it, you have to take reasonable care with your cars security..

Re: Have you locked your car.

Hi

Never locally.
No self respecting thief would be seen dead in my car.

I do lock it in Stoke however, they are not very fussy there.
