I still like my crazy idea of having a "dummy key". One that you leave somewhat out in the open in your house so when thieves break in they quickly spot this set of keys.

It opens the car, but when they turn the ignition on it just starts honking the horn really loudly, car alarm goes off. The car stereo could give an announcement of calling the police..


Who the heck is going to mess around after that.... Probably would leg it.

I know a few folk who have similarly stickers as an extra deterrent. Disklock and similar steering lock won’t be much a deterrent as most will have the key for it on the same bunch of keys as the car keys. The fact they breaking into your house they will try and find it.

Just saw this on Facebook. This is the sh1t society is dealing with. Broad daylight.

About 8 years ago, I got a 2year suspended sentence because I caught a scumbag actually in my car trying to hot wire it. He struggled and tried to run off so I gave him a few slaps and punches and knelt on his back whilst my wife called the cops. He then had the nerve to put in a charge of abh to the police which they followed up.
This is what happens when you try to defend your property..... you become the criminal because some do gooder twat has decided all the thieving ******** have more rights than you.
That's a joke!

They know they can’t be touched , I would have said I acted in self defence as it was on your property they’d find it difficult to prosecute

A simple tip if you do not have a dog , place a “BEWARE OF THE DOG(S) “sign on your gate/Fence /Doors , this is a definite deterrent especially when the signs are indicating that aGerman Shepherd or Doberman live here!!
I can personally recommend getting yourself a specially trained Malinois dog.

Depends, would you want your car back if it was stolen? Plus when I enquired, the insurance saving is very negligible.

Glad the OP is ok and his car wasn't taken. This country really has gone to the dogs where there is no longer a deterrent to crime.

If you can, I would recommend fitting sash jammers to your front and back doors as well as ground floor windows. Fab n Fix make really good ones.

There are a number of high quality 3 star cylinders available on the market. I would stay clear of the Ultion locks. They are very good, but there have been stories of a lot of them jamming.

BTW anyone watching Grand Theft Auto Undercover Criminal on Ch5 right now? About to see two scumbag women break into a house with a screwdriver to steal a car.

I sorry to hear that, and then when people suggest that the magistrates/judges give out too lenient sentences , you get shouted down. In my particular state Police no longer attend accidents - a large 4wd , fails stop at a Stop sign, her car written off, ambulance called, police called - police said they not required to attend and they not coming - other driver gets off scot free.
