Wow! Does this seriously work??
My dad doesn't lock his car doors either. At one time, we had these reckless kids that lived up the hill from us who would periodically break into cars and rummage through glove boxes for cash or anything else quick and slightly valuable. My dad got tired of them scratching the windows with their metal coat hangers and messing with all his stuff. Luckily, they never broke a window. But he eventually just left everything unlocked, took everything out of the car, and would leave the glove box wide open.
I, on the other hand, installed an alarm on my car with the transponder system that goes off beeping and vibrating on my keychain if someone triggers my alarm. I like to keep my radar detector, a few CDs, a phone charger, etc in my car so I need to have it locked. I do always remove my stereo faceplate though. I find that simply having the little red blinky light deters thieves most of the time.
