Leave ‘em In The Car, Eh?



I’ve always had a soft spot for our neighbors to the south, so I was sad to hear that Toronto is experiencing a car theft epidemic. As the article points out, there are many things you can do to protect your car from theft, but Toronto Police Service Constable Marco Ricciardi doesn’t think you should do anything to protect your car.

At an Etobicoke safety meeting attended by the constable, new advice was given to vehicle owners in the city: make it easier for thieves to access your keys. "To prevent the possibility of being attacked in your home, leave your fobs at your front door, because they're breaking into your home to steal your car. They don't want anything else," said Ricciardi at the meeting.

Some Torontobites are not only taking that advise, but also taking extra precautions:

I think I I have a better way will keep car thieves out of your house and protect the the window glass; just leave the keys in the car. I am sure the Toronto Constabulary would approve.

I’ve even prepared, with the help of AI, a handy window sticker you can print, giving notice that you are on board with the new Constabulary guidelines. You could print two, one for your car and one for your front door.
