Do you lock you car doors when you park & go shopping?

I just saw on CNN that in Va. , The Police are going through parking lots and looking for open car doors & valuables in full view. If the car door is open they put in a pamphlet that says "Gotcha!" & it reminds people how many cars are stolen & broken into this time of year. If you have valuables in full view & locked doors they put it on your windshield. Where in America is it still safe to leave your car doors open? What about if someone is waiting for you in the back seat!! That's why I lock my doors.

  • Always! My car is never unlocked, at home or in parking lots. Just safer that way and a great habit to get into!

  • I never leave my car doors unlocked. Even if I am only going to run in and out somewhere, I always lock the doors and take the keys with me. I also never leave anything on the seat where anybody might see it and think it's something of value, even if it's not. It's just common sense to me to put stuff in the trunk where it is out of sight.

  • We always lock our car. Even when we go to my grandpas and park it in the garage. I don't think there is anywhere that's safe to leave your car doors open.

  • I never use to lock my doors anywhere, but I do now since someone went through my car while it was sitting in front of my house.q
