Lock your car doorS!

I received the followings in my email today, and just wanted to share again on the importance of locking your car door.  I remembered back then 13 years ago, when I drive, I don’t have the habit of locking my door while I enter the car, however it was much safer then than now.

I got a friend (NH) whom used to hitch a ride home after work, will be my “reminder” to lock my car door and she is paranoid about this matter.  Since she “tumpang” my car, myself also gotten used to the habit of locking my car when I am inside (no matter if the engine is on or off). 

Now, with the improvement of the technology, the central locking system is even better, that we can control by stepping on the break, when we enter the car.  So, now if I start my engine, first thing will I do is stepping on the break in order to lock my car.  (this system can be done even your car is not having it from the manufacturer).

I will try to translate the following passages, and hopefully it can create some awareness..

 

我老婆開車載著我心愛的小Baby去買炒麵 ,

車子就停在一家快炒的攤子前,

因為車上有 Baby ,

所以就搖下車窗叫老闆弄,沒下車.

然後再把車窗搖上和小Baby 玩 ,

我老婆有一個習慣 ,

人在車上,一定要上中控鎖,無論是發動或停止。

前有一輛銀色的休旅車, 兩個人,

兩個人都走下車.看起斯斯文文的 ,

走過我們的車,我老婆和小Baby正玩得開心,

突然後座,'ㄆㄧㄚ'!!的一聲

我老婆嚇一跳!!

驚覺有人要開我們的車門 ,

因為鎖住,他們又裝作若無其事的走回去車上。

我老婆說給我聽的時候 ,

我覺得太不可思議了 ,

這事情就在光天化日下發生 ,

如果沒有鎖的話,我真的不敢想像會發生什麼事情。

希望大家有上鎖的習慣 ,

他們都是從後座下手的.

因為這樣最容易制服一個人 ,

況乎車上有小Baby,

你會放他不管就下車嗎 ?

看到這消息真是令我感到驚訝,

以前都是接到別人轉手好幾次的訊息 ,

都不太覺得害怕,這真的十分重要

 

“My wife took the baby out with her to buy fried noodles, and stopped the car in front of the stall to order the food, since there was the baby in the car, she just wind the window and ordered directly.  While waiting for the food to be ready, she played with the baby.  She then noticed 2 young guy came down from the MPV in front of her, and walked towards the rear of her car.  The rear door suddenly had a snap sound, while my wife and baby were happily playing.  My wife had a shock and saw the 2 guys trying to open the car door.  It was good that my wife had a habit of locking the car doors no matter the car is stalled or moving.  When my wife told me about it, I was amazed that this kind of action was done even on a day bright light.  I can’t imagine what would have happen if the car doors were not locked.  Nowadays, bad people will try to attack from the rear of the car as it will be easier to “tame” their victim.  And since you have a baby in the car, you wouldn’t leave the baby and run on your own right?”

 

我爸媽上個月底到醫院探望親戚,

之後準備到地下停車場開車回家,

當把車子開上來在收費亭繳錢後,

出來一轉剛好遇到紅燈就停下來,

就在此時中控鎖尚未自動鎖門 ,

兩名青年就這樣從後門左右個別進入坐到後座,

還好我爸媽反應快,馬上拔掉安全帶及車鑰匙後,

迅速站在外 面,

那兩人一樣不動聲色的坐著,

我媽拉大嗓子跟他們吼說 '

我們也有很多人在醫院樓上要不要叫他們下來?'

後來他們走出車外說'對不起,坐錯車了'(怎麼可能.分明是要搶劫)

然後旁邊一台車(有兩人在內)迅速開來載走他們.....

真是十分恐怖 !

以前我們家的車雖有中控鎖,但不會自動在開車後鎖門,

而換車後我們又太依賴自動鎖.....

所以人千萬不要太鐵齒 ,

一直認為自己不會碰到,

但現在實在是越來越多搶劫詐騙案件 ,

請大家還是要多加注意......

切記!

一上車就要鎖門

 

“My parents were at the hospital visiting a relative last month, and after collecting their car and paid at the exit, it was a “red” light for a stop.  The central locking system has yet to be activated, and there were 2 young men entering the car via the rear doors.  With immediate reaction, my parents release the seat belts and got down from the car.  They just stand right next to the car.  These 2 young men were still refused to get down from the car, and my mum just told them at the top of her voice that there were still many relatives in the hospital, and should they need them to come down.  The 2 young men then got out from the car and simply apologised and say it’s a wrong car that they have entered.  (how can… they are there to rob)!  Soon, the got into the car that parked next to my parent’s car and sped off.  Scary right?  So, if your car central locking system is not working, lock your doors manually before leaving the parking / house.”

 

昨天突然心血來潮開車去幼稚園接我小兒子下課!

紅燈時 ,

我的車停在路口算來約第三部或第四部。

過一會兒,突然有一部摩托車停在我車子旁邊,

車上有兩個約20歲左右的年輕男生。

以摩托車的習性而言,除非是躲陽光,

否則在前面有還有空位時摩托車通常還會往前停。

但昨天JB下著毛毛雨,不可能是躲陽光。

更奇怪的是,他們兩人還一直往我車內張望,

因為覺得奇怪,

所以也看了他們一眼。

然後綠燈了,起步了,

就在起步的同時,

我聽到其中一個人用閩南語說:'車門都鎖起來了'

然後車子就騎走了 ,

聽到話的同時,我楞了一下,等到發現他們的企圖時,

我開始覺得害怕,但是想去看他們的車牌時已經來不及了。

事後回想,他們當時的企圖要不就是搶車,要不就是搶錢!

更可怕的是,也許會打開我的後門把我兒子抱走,

然後綁架勒贖 !

如果我當時車門沒有上鎖,或許人多車多時他們不會有動作,

但他們可以尾隨,伺機行動。

之前也曾聽說有人一上車,車門還沒鎖,旁邊就有人開了後門坐進車內,

拿刀架在駕駛人脖子上搶劫的事。

想提醒大家的是,現在車子都有中控鎖,為了自己的安全,

一上車就要記得把中控鎖按下去,

外面的人想開車門時才不容易得逞。

只是一個小動作,但卻可能避免一個社會新聞的發生!

之前提醒過身邊其他人很多次,但是真正放在心上的人不多。

昨天遇到的事情讓我慶幸自己養成了一上車就上鎖的習慣,

現在景氣不好,想走捷徑的人那麼多。

請大家一定要多花點心思和時間保護自己,

無法想像這種事情如果發生在自己或是關心的人的身上,

那種錐心刺骨的痛會有多深切!

 

“I was in the mood to pick up my son from kindy one day, and while at the traffic light (red), I was the third / forth car.  There was a bike approaching my direction and stopped next to me car.  There were 2 young men in their 20s riding the bike.  As normally bikers will move forward to the front, provided they are trying to get some shed from the sunlight, however JB was drizzling that day, and that’s impossible that the bike was under bright sunlight.  What find it weird was that the young men kept looking into my car.  Upon the green light, and about to move, I simply heard them spoken in hokkien that “the car doors were lock” and they sped off.  After hearing this, I was stunt for a moment knowing their intention, and what if they managed to open the door and kidnap my son at the rear?  I have also heard that people entering the unlocked cars to rob the driver, and it will be worse if it became a kidnap crime.

So, my dear friends, it’s just a small action, and remember to lock your car once you are inside.  Do not take risk as the current economy situation is not favourable, therefore people will try finding short cuts to earn a living.  Protect yourself and your family.. spend a bit more time and thoughts for them.. you will never be able to imagine / predict if this kind of stuff will happen on you or your family member!”

I did my best to translate this (not from google translate) ya… and hope to remind my readers on “LOCKING YOUR CAR DOORS”
