Paid for by caught thieves I hope.

I liked having one of those locks in my car because it could double as a defensive weapon (road ragers) or be used in an emergency - smashing a window or prying open a door.

there's a difference between theft of auto and theft from auto. a club isn't going to stop a thief from breaking INTO your car.

Creating a brand new top 10!

You go Vancouver Police, wasting all your money like that.

It's like no one understands that things so rarely exist in bubbles.

Free Steering Wheel locks

Vancouver residences ONLY ? So people who live in Surrey, Coquitlam and Burnaby are not eligible to get free steering wheel locks???

OMG! Just go buy one.

Fuck...you could afford the car. What are they? $29.95?

This shit is so ridiculous. The police in Vancouver are so over budgeted that they can give away shit like its the Price Is Right.

If you want a lock, buy a lock. If you have a crime, call the police. There is a division of labour here that people that should get it, aren't.

maybe they figure it's more efficient to just hand out some free locks rather than chase opportunistic car thieves down the street.
