    British Leyland tried something along those lines, and it wasn't hugely successful, I'm afraid...

    You can train a dog to not eat food unless it's given a command - but it's an effort.

    If Im home I dont bother to lock the car on the driveway. (I do overnight).
    To be fair you could do that most places and it's still very low risk - unless you get people walking down your street trying all the doors and cars. Which presumably happens in some places.

    Probably it's one of those things where it's 100:1 rather than 1000:1 until a gang decides to target your street

    We're off the beaten track now so you'd have to specifically target us but on the other hand it's very secluded so if you did, nobody would see you and if we shouted nobody would hear. Security lights make it seem safer although when you've the curtains shut you cannot tell they've come on... must be a way to remedy that.
