Mike’s top five tips to avoid getting your vehicle stolen?
#5. Only drive cars that are made before 1999 or after 2007.
#4. Get a license plate that says BAIT CAR.
#3. You can use an approved anti-theft device like a club or an immobilizer, but you may also consider some more geeky devices like a blaster, light-saber, laser cannon, tractor beam, death star… that type of thing.
#2. Steam-up all the windows and leave a sock and a shoe on the ground outside the door whenever you park.
#1. Only park beside really expensive, unlocked cars.
