It depends, if it's in my garage it's unlocked, not in the garage it's locked.

Locks are what keep honest people from stealing your stuff. Anyone who really wants your stuff will get past the locks. I always lock.

I locked my vehicle a few times, it was broke into it and glass had to be replaced, but never enough to meet deductible. Now I leave the keys in the ignition and unlocked, no one ever bothers it.

fourth poll option: why do you ask, why do you care, and who the h|| are you anyway? you trying to get at my secret research? you trying to unearth my secret findings about Lee Harvey Oswald and the grassy knoll? okay buddy, just come and ask me in person ... okay? please, just ask me in person about whether I lock my car doors, make my day!


fifth poll option: car door locks? you mean there are locks and keys on them thingys?


sixth poll option: of course I lock me doors, otherwise the aliens would take my car and rearrange everything in it by dephasing everything by 79 degrees! sometimes they leave their probes in my car too! so, I have to!

...

ninth poll option: since the KTA is a tool of the reichwing [remember old logrithmic?] if I lock my doors, they pay special attention through the K-tag, so I leave doors unlocked and open to let out the evil.
God bless us all.

I actually am amazed at the number of car burglaries in Lawrence that end up being someone that didn't lock their car doors. Happens all the time.

I always lock my doors, even in my own driveway. A cop once told me that the best deterrent against house burglars is to have a dog, even a small dog, because most thieves are lazy and figure there are plenty of houses to rob where they won't have to deal with a dog. I figure the same logic applies to car thieves...I'm just asking for someone to reach in and grab a couple of CDs or something if I don't lock the doors.

Most of the time it is unlock and if anyone can find anything valuable in there underneath the tons of school bags, fast food wrappers, assorted items of children's clothes, a few things that could be science experiments and everything else that seems to be in my minivan, then they can have it.

Heck, they can have the van if they really want it. Seriously, steal it. I won't mind all that much.

I tend to lock my doors more in Lawrence, even if it's just to run in the quick stop for a minute. Seems to be alot of people there who want other peoples stuff. But for the most part, I lock them.

There's nothing in my car worth stealing. If they want to clean out the trash, have at it!!!

I was advised by a person in the know, City leaders are going to start taxing people who lock their doors. Both at home and in their cars. Then the owners of those cars and houses will be able to use those taxes to improve their cars and homes.

I used to leave my convertible unlocked. I figured whatever was stolen inside would be cheaper to replace than a slashed top.

Hell, If I took the keys out, I would loose them.
