Watching the Viceland channel the other day about car jackers one was being interviewed and when asked why the pointed gun car jackings instead of simply stealing cars the car jacker said the cars are too hard to steal now with the advanced technology so they are forced to jack them instead!!. Ironic that the car makers try to help owners instead they are getting them killed. Add to this the number of drivers killed while on the phone today versus before cell phones. Technology kills in many ways.

I like the stories where some punk jacks a car, jumps in, realizes it's a stick, jumps back out and runs away.

Sometimes old technology is the better deterrent.
