There’s a car alarm going off outside in my apartment’s parking lot. So far it’s been going off for about fifteen minutes.
While the noise doesn’t bother me, it does raise an interesting question: What happens if a car alarm just keeps going? What can anyone else do if the owner isn’t around or doesn’t know about it for a long time?
ETA: This is under the guise that either the owner cannot be reached/found or the fact that nobody knows who the owner is.
