Yesterday me & friends went to a local shopping mall, she learnt driving recently we were so happy to go out after a long time. We went by 11 am, shopping lunch, we were walking towards parking lot , it's daylight big parking lot with many cars. We both saw 2 men attempting to open the car, one was beneath the car. We shouted and called 911. Both sped away in foot, I believe they had a partner in a vehicle somewhere near. In the tense moments I couldn't take a video or pic, to give to cops. They damaged car don't know what they did had to tow. we made sure we locked the car, no purse, coins, any valuables inside the car. Still they attempted to steal. While talking to cops we heard people stealing catalytic converter of Toyota cars. Not to stereotype most Asians and desis drive Toyota or any reliable vehicle in long run. How to prevent & protect auto theft. Is there any sensor to alert? Any chain kind of equipment to lock the car wheels and steering wheel. Pls share. What we can do?
