    Default The Modern Car Prowler

    So they no longer use their bikes or walk. I present the modern car prowler

    Is this a Honda minivan? Is it green or blue? Pardon the garbage bag. I have a leaking pipe mold issue in the basement I was dealing with last night.

    Door-checkers are everywhere now. And enough people leave thier doors open either accidentally or routinely that it pays off.

    I get it. Trust me. That why I had this cam installed with the flood light. At least I can better prepare myself. I’ve had a few this summer but nothing this impressive.

    My wife had her SUV get hit at Deerfoot City while she was less than 100 feet, they only took change because that's all there was to take but it had been inadvertently unlocked by someone else who was working at the farmers' market with her. The one time one of our vehicles is left unlocked and it gets hit by door checkers - they are everywhere.

    Stop & go in that shit box minivan will cost more in fuel than the sunglasses and pocket change Skinny Pete eventually scores.

    Unless already stolen minivan...

    I hope someone catches him and he has "an awful fall" while running away.

    I honestly don't understand why so many people do this. It's so easy to hit lock on your keyfob while walking away. Or if you have a super annoying domestic vehicle that honks the horn when you lock it, then just hit the physical button on the door as you get out.

    People are dumb.

    My family leaves something open once or twice a year, and we get prowled that often.

    You can turn the honk off on lots. I always lock mine before going to bed, every night last thing I do haha

    I had accidentally left my car unlocked this past weekend. Garage door opener was stolen so I had to get a replacement remote and delete/reprogram the openers.

    If lights shining on the car won't stop them, nothing will.

    Because they know that no one is going to be awake to notice the lights on.

    At 12:41 in the morning they know the lights don't mean anything. You may as well put up a sign saying "please don't check my door handles."

    Don't mean to be rude but what is your hope in spending your hard earned money on setting up a camera??

    I prefer to just keep my doors locked and removing all valuables...I even remove my dashcam. Like it or not, this happens Every. Single. Night.

    And if they every caught, it's petty theft... theft under $5,000 it used to be called. Nothing happens. I grew to in Vancouver where auto theft was big, the thieves literally steal cars from the courthouse parking lot to get home.

    Just don't leave any valuables in your car and/or lock it and get over it, your door will be touched sometimes multiple times a night depending on the area.

    See I think we have identified the problem, lack of consequences.

    I vote that we bring in the noose for car prowlers.

    Sounds like we would be stuck with a disability cheque for life in that case.

    Nope, noose is the way to go

    True.

    My wife nagged me to get security for this. I told her the exact same thing. Wtf for? First of all why the hell an I spending hundreds of dollars to help police do their job... then on top of that even if they do catch them, nothing happens to them. This is pretty theft nothing more. Waste of time. Just accept it that your car doors will be touched multiple times a week and keep it locked and live on with your life.
