what they do: You return to your car left in a car park,unlock your car
and get inside, start the engine and shift into REVERSE and when you
look into the rear view mirror to back out of your parking space you
notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle of the rear window.
either switch off the car or leave the engine running and jump out of
your car to remove that paper (or whatever it is) that is obstructing
your view... When you reach the back of the car that is when the
hi-jackers appear out of nowhere, jump into your car and take off!

moving in to a new neighborhood?
Take a walk in the area and take note of how many ground floor flats
