Breaking Me


Do you have any advice on how I can stop people from breaking my window to get inside even though I have NOTHING in there to take?

broken car window


Well most car owners in urban areas have had thishappen to them at least one time. Even me. I’ve seen people try everything but believe it or not, the thing that seems to work the best is to simply leave a note on the car that says “NOTHING INSIDE, DOOR OPEN”. And obviously, leave the door open. Simple and effective…. a little scary too, but seems to work. I’ve had people bring in their cars for window replacement and tell me they had a note that said “NOTHING INSIDE” but so far no one has come with one that had what I’m suggesting and I’ve suggested it to many, so I’m assuming it’s working.
