Leaving keys in unlocked cars is a dangerous practice

In my years as a clinical social worker (now retired), I worked with many young offenders who told me, “If I see a nice car unlocked with keys, I will take it. If the owner doesn’t care enough to lock it, I’m entitled to it.”

It appears Hinsdale is becoming a field of operation for like-minded criminals. When you leave your luxury car unlocked with fob available, you are inviting criminals into our community and putting your family, friends, neighbors and kids at risk.

If you no longer want your luxury car, why not just contact a thief and have them come and pick it up? That would be safer for everyone, including the thief. — Vivian Walsh, Hinsdale
