In any urban city whenever you park outside (which is typical in San Francisco), there’s always a part of you that’s worrying whether your car is ok. Or if you left something in the car that may compell someone to break in. Even in the suburbs, I am reluctant to leave anything in view anymore.
Especially if it’s a rather new car (within the last 5 years). And even more if it’s a car that has expensive parts to replace any damaged pieces.
It’s a strange feeling to have when that feeling is absent when your car is parked in suburban areas even if it’s out in the open on the street.
But to some, having the freedom of control is better than none at all.
