My daughter and I live in a townhouse and along one windowless wall is our parking spot. It’s been a bit annoying that I can’t see the car from inside our home. There were some odd times when I went outside to check the car because I had a bad feeling or heard a strange noise.
It is one of the reasons we have cameras surrounding our house and have a good relationship with our neighbors. After seeing how awesome our footage was, they too invested in similar equipment. Now, our little block is heavily surveilled. Every so often some idiot will creep into the back lot behind our row of houses, somewhere between 3 am and 5 am, and pull at car doors. Whenever they find one unlocked, because a couple of the college kids living nearby forget to lock them (how I don’t know), it’s ransacked for anything the thief assesses a value to. And this entices them to return. Sometimes, though, an alarm will sound instead, and you see this fool scrambling off into the night — fleeing the scene as fast as he can.
