Default Make sure to lock your vehicles

Accidentally left mine unlocked when I got home yesterday and paid the price. Luckily only things they found were my hunting backpack, a set of gerber knives and a bag of change. They missed a few things under the back seat, and didnít get into my toolbox. Hate a thief.

Yep. I usually leave my keys in mine over night.

I never lock my truck at home. I'm the last house on a 5 mile dirt road.

It would be easier if people didnít act like ****bags and left other peopleís stuff alone. Did a police report. Apparently this is happening around our area.

Sorry to hear that. I've made that mistake at my place. Luckily they made off with all the junk from my console and missed my wallet and electronics... Apparently there were some punks going around stealing from peoples' open garages and checking for unlocked vehicles. My parents are having the same problem in their neighborhood.

Unfortunately that is one of those crimes that tend to hit an area pretty hard until they are caught.

Keep everything locked and keep an eye on local news for updates of the terds being caught.

Ha, I live three miles outside of a very small town behind a gate and I lock mine every night. I don't "have" to lock it, but I'd rather feel safe than feel stupid. Same reason I carry a gun every day, chit happens !

Unlocked and leave the keys in it and if it gets stolen, the insurance may not pay. They will say you are aiding an abetting the theft.

Where did you hear something like this? Not true at all!

Although they should, these policies don't have a dumb arse exclusion!

Googled and found this little tidbit:

However, if you leave the keys in your vehicle, or leave your vehicle running, the insurance company will most likely deny your claim because you did not responsibly secure your vehicle.

Another expectation that insurance companies have is that you will only loan your vehicle to responsible people.

If you loan your vehicle to someone with a criminal record, a stranger, or someone known for irresponsible behavior, and that person does not return your vehicle, the insurance company could deny your claim.

The burden of proof is on the insurance company, but all they have to do is provide a criminal record, bad driving record, or a few witnesses testifying to the typical behavior of the person you loaned your vehicle to in order to prove you are at fault.

I guess this is dumb arse also!

Donít matter if you lock the doors here. If the criminals see something they want they will get it. But more than likely they will take the whole car.
They flee from the cops as the cops are not allowed to pursue.

If they do manage to get caught the judges let them out on trust with the Arnold foundation guidelines.

So basically the honest working person is screwed.

Talk to your insurance person and make sure you have the correct coverages.
My wife calls every six months and makes sure we have what we need.

Been in this job 40+ years and never heard of a company denying a claim under those circumstances.

I understand, I just posted this and I said in my original post that they may not pay, not that they would deny a claim like this. Always a first time and I guess you see every claim brought before an insurance company. Just saying.

I grew up in Irving so it was just instinct to lock your car everywhere you went. I do it at the deer lease and everyone looks at me funny! Better safe than sorry.
