    The leftist utopia of San Francisco in all its glory. I honestly don't understand why anybody lives there. I hate going there for work. I personally think it's a shit hole. Homeless people and drug addicts everywhere. A couple of years ago a street light fell over because the base had become corroded from bums pissing on it.

    Does placing a 'no valuables inside' sign in a car window deter break-ins?

    I hope so I posted a sign on the bag of money I left in the car. Here's hoping.

    I think the only city I've been in away from home where my car was broken into --- and I've been to a lot including San Francisco --- was Montréal.

    But I wouldn't try to make the leap that that somehow told me something about Montréal politics. :uhh:

    If it is in San Fran, shouldn't the sign read, "No lube inside."

    If you place a sign of"no valuables" in the car

    is even worse.

    the vandals can get really angry and might break the windows instead.....out of spite

    a "win win" situation poor Califucknia :rolleyes:

    I like it --- an old city with a vibrant character. But way way way too expensive.

    Oh yes, it used to be a nice city.

    Not anymore.

    Exactly. Old story. Guy parks car near SF. Rolls windows down, door unlocked. Puts a sign "nothing of value". Robber rolls up drivers window, breaks it. Edits sign "just checking".......

    I was waiting for you to ask what is the worst type of accident to get into in San Fran. Rear-ended.

    Sort of like posting signs that say "This is a gun-free home". A clear invitation.
