    PUT YOUR CAR KEYS BESIDE YOUR BED AT NIGHT

    Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents your Dr's office, the check-out girl at the market, everyone you run across.

    Put your car keys beside your bed at night. If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies.

    This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this:

    It's a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain. It works if you park in your driveway or garage If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house, odds are the burglar rapist won't stick around... After a few seconds all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won't want that. And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there ..... This is something that should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could save a life or a sexual abuse crime.

    P.S. I am sending this to everyone I know because I think it is fantastic. Would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart attack, where you can't reach a phone. My Mom has suggested to my Dad that he carry his car keys with him in case he falls outside and she doesn't hear him. He can activate the car alarm and then she'll know there's a problem.
    Please pass this on even IF you've read it before. It's a reminder.

    Not everyone has neighbors. If I were having a heart attack and relied on my car alarm to summon help I would be pushing up daisies really soon.

    I've never owned a car that had an alarm like that. [​IMG]

    I sleep with *other* forms of protection and I have a dog for an alarm system [​IMG]

    My car doesn't come with those electronic do-dads. I'll have to rely on the dog and the baseball bat.

    Yeah, my vw bus doesn't have one either......lol

    But my dog LINK on the other hand! DONT come onto my property at night or he will attack you! Couple years back we had a guy running from bounty hunters and he tried to jump our fence. He met our dog at the gate and fell back!

    Here we never even knew Link would do that, he is sooooo passive we have to check his pulse to make sure he is still alive....lol
    He charged the fence and the whole house shook, full rotty/shepard teeth showing trying to bite the heck out of this guy

    GOOOOOOOOOO LINK

    I think its a good idea as soemthing else someone can do , along with things like locking doors and windows ect .
    I dont have a car , I do have a VERY large wodden handled hammer thats about the size of my forarm (Im a big girl and almost 6 feet tall) I have never come across another hammer as imposeing as this one I have had it for 16 years now as my alternative to a baseball bat , luckly ne ver had to use it.
    I am so protective of my son I almost feel sorry for anyone that tries to break into my home.
