I thought I was just paranoid about this sort of thing happening. Apparently with just cause too.

People reckon I am paranoid about 'not' leaving the keys' in the ignition, no matter where and SWMBO is always taking the mickey out of me, but, you could never imagine something like this happening, would you?

I sure hope this doesn't put then off caravanning - maybe ExplorOZ could send them one years free membership to keep them on track.

The crook gets nothing!

Can only happen if you are careless and leave the keys in the car.

Admittedly was an unusual case but still the same reason.

Hi All, after having my 4by stolen and yes it was locked up. I can understand why the couple decided to leave the keys in the ignition. the joy of a new caravan and being shown around it.

But i digress. If i leave my car for more than 2 seconds, even in my front yard, keys are in my hand and doors locked. Pronto.

I and my lovely wife don't walk more than two metres away before car is locked.

i do hope they are ok and don't see what happened as a bad omen, like Fiona & Paul said.

We must stop blaming the victims all the time.
If I had it my way, anyone that steals a vehicle should be given a ride; they must be sited 10 metres behind the vehicle.
In no time, no more stole cars!!!!!!

When I take this country over things are going to change!
People like the thief here are going to be airlifted into Afghanistan and dropped onto enemy positions as low yield explosives. All our volunteers are going to be pulled back from the front line - to strap said thieving bastards to bomb racks.
I feel better now, thanks for your attention :-)

these mongrels are opportunists so give them that few seconds of time frame
and they take it and dont care who or what they destroy but you can not leave your keys in anything or anywhere these days or your asking for trouble as they found out
and so have i

i had my wallet stolen 20 mths ago from the front seat of my mazda while i was wheeling mulch from the trailer within my carport to the back yard and in the 60 seconds that i was away to empty the barrow and return
an aboriginal youth took the chance that i'd given him and snatched it from my shirt pocket on the front seat and ransacked the glove and the center boxes as well
he was seen leaving on a bike by the neighbours he got $120 and i lost my wallet and every card i owned
so i now dont leave anything unlocked or laying around no matter what it is
or how much it makes life awkward
because the inconvience of loosing stuff is far worse

re ------campsite shootingout of alice springs

i see where alice springs police have arrested a 19yr old about the shooting incident in the campsite north of alice springs

where the man was shot in the arm
the attacker
didnt know his victim and had a arsenal of weapons and ammo in his house take good care and dont think the above can't or wont happen to you because the reallity of it all is
it could and i'm not being paranoid

thats the sad part of life in our great australian land at the moment and the future
what the -------has happened to our country
well i believe i know the answer to that but i would'nt dare say it on here
but i think a lot of you already know the reasons
cheers and safe travelling

Almost the same thing happened to me mazcan. I went from the car to the shed and came back to find that a Caucasian youth had stolen my wallet.
