Car theft deterrent
Cars seem to attract thieves, probably because of the relative ease of entering them. Anyone who has locked their keys inside will testify that a bent coathook can usually secure an early reunion. The deterrent proposed is aimed at discouraging casual joyriders who want not want to risk setting off an alarm - even if, as here, one did not exist. In fact, the deterrent is simply an alarm type indication that, if accompanied by suitable warning stickers, should provide basic proteetion. It must be stressed, of course, that this deterrent does not act as an alarm and it would be wise to invest in a security system, such as an immobilizer or a Krookloc.
