How many people have a security camera facing where they park their car?

What is a good home security camera system?

I knew some ppl who gave up locking their car doors since the thieves were smashing the window just to steal the change. Nothing much else to steal and the car wasn't worth much.
Now if you have a last gen Chrysler intrepid with the common steering problem, that be fun to see them steal one of those. My friend has one and the steering will randomly seize up when driving. He nearly went head on with a dump truck.

In this day and age of immobilizers, are they really looking to steal the car?

After getting my car broken into many years ago (nothing was stolen as you aren't meant to leave anything in your car), I never locked my car again when at home - open up glove box, open up centre console, leave car unlocked.

assuming you do not run the risk of having a bum sleeping in your car, this is the best option - doubtful they could get the car started (and if they could / were looking to do this, would they really not break a window to get in)

it wasn't until I had $5K of damage done to my car (bonnet, roof, interior - why couldn't they just enter through the side window - well, bc they were idiots, that's why and figured side window breakage would set off factory alarm yet sunroof wouldn't?) that I really thought about this problem and came to the above conclusion

Adopt a Rez dog. Monty always knows when someone shady is around. When people hear a 60lb junkyard mutt growling from the window above them they fuck off fast.

Unfortunately this seems to be the modus operandi for petty thieves nowadays. They don't have to break anything and it takes zero effort.

I've fallen victim to this several times in the past few years. I forget to lock the car with the remote after carrying in my kid or something like that.
