Warning about a new trick: If you see a plastic bottle on your vehicle tire, you may be in danger
Criminals that rob drivers - and even steal their cars - are a source of concern for police around the world.
Now the police are warning everyone about a new trick that thieves use to steal valuable objects or even the cars themselves.
The trick is quite simple: the thieves put a target on cars in parking lots.
Usually it's an empty plastic bottle over the right tire of the car. So the driver usually does not see it, and then they wait.
When the driver is about to leave, he hears strange sounds as the plastic bottle begins to break. Unaware of the existence of the bottle, and the thieves nearby, the driver's first instinct is to get out of the car and investigate where the noise come from.
At this moment the thieves are carrying out their plan.
While the driver is checking his car, the thieves now have access to the unlocked car, which they could not do before.
They may take valuable objects from the car, or if the driver leaves the key on the switch, they will even run away with the vehicle.
In a YouTube video, which has been watched more than 6 million times, a man warns about the new crime method. He demonstrates how thieves carry out their plan and asks everyone to share this information - so that everyone will be aware of the trick and learn how to defend themselves.
See how the program is done in the video below:
We think it is important that we all help spread this warning so that more people will be aware of the trick of these terrible criminals. If we could help one person not become a victim, it's worth it!
