car theft warning
saw this on another site guys
Our local paper (Express & Star - Dudley) have reported a trend in car thefts in the area using a particular method...
The thieves tie beer cans to the exhaust of your parked car and lie in wait for you to return.
You drive off, hear the noise, get out of the car to investigate - so confused you leave the engine still runnings. Meanwhile some toe-rag jumps in & drives off.
A woman from Stourbridge lost a TT this week using this method - but they say this is becoming a common occurance in the Midlands.
Has anyone else hear of this happening to anyone?
Would your insurance cover you or would they say "Tough luck - you left the keys in an unattended vehice" - I wouldn't put it past 'em
