I think so - whole metropolitan areas seem to be at risk. One post (from
Seattle?) was lamenting the 4th loss of HIDs from his Acura or Honda - I
forget which - while it was in a parking lot. He was done with the battle.
Oddly, when I was single I lived in an area of Oakland, CA, where the police
would not stop at night (no exaggeration; I could tell you *such* stories).
My apartment was repeatedly burglarized while I was at work, including three
times within a two week period, but my car was never disturbed although it
was parked on the street. Dunno why, except maybe the expectation of a
horrible death to anybody who was caught by the owner when trying to mess
with a car.
It IRKS me when people suggest moving to a "better neighborhood".
As if anyone can just up and move,or that a "better neighborhood" will keep
his vehicle from being burgled.
Garaging the auto will keep it from being burgled,but he probably does not
have that option,either.
I have my car garaged at night. Thats no problem. I just worry when I go
somewhere. I have to costantly wonder if my lights are ok. I think I may
get rid of it tomorrow.
Also my neighborhood isnt bad. Its the idiots that come from the other
neighborhoods tryin to steal them.
