Honda Busted [Aug. 15th, 2006|08:37 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Dina found the Honda passenger window smashed and stereo gone as she went to go to her doctor's appointment in Oakland this morning.

Taking her there now. Fun.

I don't think a honda exists that hasn't been broken into or stolen. They should just come that way from the factory and save on police reports.

We've had that happen in three of our cars. Two of them were parked in our driveway at our home in Texas at the time, one of them was our son's and was parked in front of his apartment building in Washington DC several blocks from the Capitol building. It is always a hassle and I don't envy you the fix-up.

I see that all the time

Lots of smashed little car windows pieces on the ground, indicating that a car has been broken into. The city is not as 'safe' as people say it is. It is safer than some larger cities, but sh*t still happens here...

Re: I see that all the time

its important to make a distinction between property crime and violent crime when you are talking about "safe". its a no-brainer that affluent or middle-class neighborhoods are often more frequent targets for thieves. I know in seattle some of the safest neighborhoods as far as walking through at night are some of the worst for car break-ins.

life in the city

Our first place in the city didn't have a garage, and I was like "who cares - we'll park on the street" in my suburban-naive way. There insued multiple break-in's and way more money spent on damage than the stupid radio that was stolen. The next time we moved, getting a garage was a requirement, not an option. Sigh...

factory-installed cassette deck

Four years of Honda ownership (two in Stockton and one in San Francisco) and no break-ins. It's the only way to go.

Re: factory-installed cassette deck

Also, the "crime doesn't happen on steep hills" theory has been destroyed. :(

Re: factory-installed cassette deck

I was just thinking about that too! You really have to go out of your way to fuck with cars up at Brad's house.

You should replace the windows with bulletproof glass. Might not prevent all future robberies, but at least they won't be as messy. :)
