and even then you're still not safe.
A car I once had was broken into in the car park of our units.
I was about to sell the car so there was absolutely nothing
in the car (at all!). They still got in, checked it out then
left it. Luckily no damage, the only nuisance was they left
the door ajar so the interior light was on and the battery
was too flat to start it the next morning.
Maybe you need to follow the example of pharmacists- "NO CASH OR DRUGS LEFT
IN THIS VEHICLE".
My valueless '85 Toyota Corolla got stolen and driven around the bend
from Granville Police Station where it stayed for 6 weeks until
someone reported it or the police noticed it. Always on the ball those
police, they should be out catching the real criminals....
