In case you were not aware, there is a law in Texas that states that you cannot leave your car running unattended. It doesn't matter if you're warming it up during winter, or if you leave it running in the driveway while you run inside for a minute to grab something you forgot... In Texas, that's a no-no. And there's a good reason for it.

That's when thieves like to come along, jack your door open and take off with your vehicle. And it's happening all over the Permian, even more than you think it is. So don't allow anyone to take off with one of your most important possessions. I'd rather be a little chilly or a little warm getting in to go to work than to lose my car. I'm sure you feel the same way.


This happened to a friend of mine not from the area, thieves are doing sneaky stuff to mess with you. When you stop for gas, they wedge a bottle between the frame of your car and the tire--so that when you pull away and you hear the noise and the THUD, obviously you will stop to get out to see what the noise is, then they hop in your car and take off.

If you've gone inside to pay for gas, come out and see a bottle sitting on your tire, do NOT get in your car. Turn around, go back into the gas station and call the police. Chances are the person putting it there was caught on camera and the police can look at the video to determine the culprit, and hopefully catch them. Just a few things to be aware of to try to avoid car theft in the 432.
