Wicked Local Newton reports local police are dealing with an onslaught of car break-ins. But residents don't have to be helpless: Police say Newtonites can stop the burglars in their tracks by locking their car doors at night.
Oh, sure, I can laugh now.
They live in Newton so that they and their children don't have to deal with street thugs.
Yeah, locking your car is a huge pain that only people who can't afford to live in Newton deserve.
I always left my car unlocked in the burbs because I didn't want them to smash the windows before discovering that their prize was fast food napkins that I was saving in the glove compartment.
The majority of car burglars will only smash a car window when they can see something valuable inside.
