Oh, I hate to say this; I’m supposed to say something good about my country being a loyal citizen right? But what can I do, this is a fact that everybody ought to know and be prepared for. In the Philippines carnapping incident can happen in one’s most unexpected time and place. Carnappers are like hungry wolves ready to devour your well-loved babies even on a broad daylight, but of course this is the last worst thing you would want to happen to your car.
So car owners are left with no choice but find ways to secure their properties. I too had to employ additional security features on our car, it did not have an alarm system when we bought it, so to put our minds at ease, we’ve installed keyless entry, it’s an electronic key that opens and closes car doors on a remote, it’s not only convenient as you don’t have to go around the car checking all four doors before leaving, it also has a siren feature that would flash alarm once a forced entry is done.
The loud alarm would caught attention making carnappers doubtful, thus avert attempted carnapping. But people should not be as confident, carnappers in the Philippines has learned to upgrade their skill of wickedness, I’m not exactly keen how they manipulate alarms from the outside that it wouldn’t send alarm anymore – a novel idea Pinoy carnappers only know, but whatever it is, I think getting this first level of security is best than nothing we can do.
