Car theft is so bad in Richmond Virginia (kids stealing cars from nice neighbourhoods, driving them til they run out of gas or wreck, then abandoning them) that I pay thru the nose for insurance. The courts are so over-run with vehicle theft cases that car thefts by minors ranks down there with jaywalking. As A teacher, I know personally kids who have stolen 2-3 cars and DID NO TIME AT ALL. A police officer told me that lojack is great if the local police will grant the time and manpower to actually track it down in time to catch the criminal and actually get them off the streets if they do. He said it was a waste of money, at least in Richmond.

And an interesting side note...
Almost all of the auto thefts I have heard about involved unlocked cars with the keys in the ignitions. All a kid has to do is walk down the street and glance in windows til he finds one... ironic isn't it.
