Dear car alarm manufacturers
Please stop. Seriously. As a theft deterrent, your product is about as useful as a politician who promises to “get tough on crime”.
I freely admit that I’m no expert in the field, but I’m pretty sure that five to ten minutes is ample time for a professional miscreant to conclude whatever business they may have with a car. If the owner of the violated vehicle fails to react within that brief window of opportunity, then I think it’s safe to assume that very little will be achieved by allowing the alarm to continue bleating away for a further eighty fucking minutes. Am I missing something here – apart from my beauty sleep, that is?
In any case, if you really intended to keep criminals at bay, you would program your devices to play Justin Bieber songs instead of that annoying weeooweeooweeoo noise… oh wait, never mind.
