Would it be safe to leave your car unlocked in your home city and why?
In downtown San Francisco, it is never safe for anyone to leave their cars unlocked. If they do so, their car might be stolen within five minutes by gangs and groups specifically out to steal cars in downtown San Francisco. However, in my hometown Napa, about one hour from San Francisco, all the neighbors know each other. It is safe to leave our cars unlocked. From time to time I would forget to lock my car and it was still there in the morning. I think it’s because all our neighbors knew each other and they can spot anyone suspicious and alert the police right away.
