Over in South Africa, they have a rather merciless anti-carjacking device because hijacking has been such a horrible problem over there. Motorists can have their cars fitted with a set of flamethrowers underneath the car. When a car jacker approaches the motorist's window, they can stomp on a pedal that sends a wall of flames up both sides of the car, efficiently repelling the would-be car jacker.

I would just love to see that "anti-theft" device in action

I started locking my car when I lived in Shreveport due to all the car jackings downtown and this is where I worked. Now it's just a habit and I never leave my purse on the seat because they will break your window to get it and by the time the shock of it happening goes away they have your purse. I leave my purse at my feet or in the backseat and I have a coupe so there is no back window close to see the purse.

I know this is an old thread, but I just got an e-mail the other day that convinced me otherwise. I don't always lock my doors depending on where I am.
This e-mail got me to thinking.... I guess there's a few wackos who thought about how to get in a locked car. When they see you in the vehicle they will come up to the window and ask you to roll it down trying to give you money they say you dropped.
Don't fall for it ladies, it's just another scam!
