Hoboken GPS spottings Apr. 2013
Hoboken GPS and other valuables in plain sight
Continuing the monthly “PSA Photo Gallery,” Hoboken GPS Spottings (a reminder that it is completely moronic to EVER leave your GPS units behind in your vehicles.) No matter what time of day or night, it’s just not a good idea. Like leaving money on the dash!
Another trend I’m starting to notice is Dash Cameras.
More drivers are starting to use these compact video devices to record their every trip. With all the texting and Facebook updating while driving, it must be more important than ever to document as much evidence as you can in order to speed through any legal or insurance matters.
However, just like GPS units – any electronic device left in plain sight will be considered valuable to the thieves among us.
Again, not doing this to publicly “shame” anyone, but rather to raise awareness that it’s not in your best interest to leave items of value in plain sight. If people chose common sense over convenience or carelessness, perhaps we can provide fewer opportunities for petty criminals to get away with an easy grab.
If this feature just saves one person from being victimized, then it’s worth it to me.
What do you prefer? The hassle of filing a police report and fixing your car? Or taking a few seconds of extra time to prevent it?
