When I hear a car alarm, I don’t jump out of my seat to look. Maybe to yell out the door “turn it off!” If a car alarm persistently activates, I will call a tow truck. Yet people still buy them. There is a person in my apartment complex, whose car loves to go off. Usually it is just a beep or two to warn you. Still pretty damn annoying. Sometimes it goes all out. Get this, I DON’T EVEN TOUCH THE CAR. I finally called the apartment management to complain. It seems to have worked, although sometimes it still beeps.
What is up with insurance companies giving rate breaks to these assholes. The cars are likely better vandalism targets as a result. Some companies have rules against annoying car alarms, either to tow them or disable the alarm. I wish more of them did this.
There are other anti-theft devises. A kill switch. Low-jack. ect…
But who really pays attention when a car alarm goes off? I just accept it as part of living in the big city, except when it wakes me up. Then tow the fucker away.
