Do you leave your car locked or unlocked when parking in city?Mar 12
For those who live in SF or Seattle, do you leave ur car locked or unlocked when parking in the city? I heard it's better to have it unlocked so that thieves can enter your car without smashing your window unless you have a bullet proof car. Since cities now tolerate and don't prosecute car break ins, I don't see any point of locking my car. Tolerating thieves wondering inside your car is probably cheaper than spending hundreds of bucks replacing car windows.
- I would rather a thief smash the window and get cut so badly they go to the hospital.
That, or give them infinite time to hot-wire your car.
- Then by all means you shouldn't lock your house either - glass will be on your floor. /s
Things happen in life, but it's not a reason to readily allow yourself to be robbed. The thief doesn't have a lot of time, you however have more time to be careful. Call the police first. Then have a towel or jacket in your car to sit on and immediately go to a vacuum at a gas stationMar 123
- NASDAQ / EngwundeebarIn Montreal it’s illegal to not lock your car if parked on the street. Got a ticket for that once.
- Edelman dvhJ60It’s not a matter of locking the car or not, it’s what you leave inside. Keep the car completely cleaned out — I’ve heard of a window getting smashed out for a 12 pack of Diet Coke.
