There was a time when thieves would break into your car just to steel the radio. As time went by, cassette players were being fitted, and these became the new attraction for thieves.
By the time CD players came into fashion, they became less interesting to thieves, as it was usually just the facia in view with the rest of the actual player often in the boot.
The other disincentive to steal, was that they were no longer universal, and thieves could only sell to a person with the exact same make and model car. And apart from that, the sound systems had become far less expensive.
Doesn’t it sometimes feel that a so called improvement is often a backward step? I was recently given an expensive kettle that arrived with an instruction booklet in ten different languages. There are various settings that I have no need for. All I want to do is boil some water for a cup of tea.
And so it seems, that when the keyless car technology came along, instead of the old fashioned key in the door to open it, this new method allows thieves to clone the electronic in seconds, from the vicinity of home, and soundlessly get into your car in under five seconds.
