Do you lock the doors on your cage?

I can't convince my GF that riding around with her doors locked is a good idea, so I wanted to see what everyone else did. My truck doors lock automatically anyway, but even if they didn't I would.

i voted no, the S/O doesn't either. that is, until we get in or around a bad neighborhood.

is this a security (carjack) issue or a safety (accident)issue Conq?

Re: Do you lock the doors on your cage?

I think she should for her own safety. The wreck issue doesn't apply, since the doors will open from the inside even when locked.

Mine lock automatically.

EDIT: I'd lock them anyway just to get the little stubs right by the window out of the way. I don't like them digging into my arms

Re: Do you lock the doors on your cage?

Pretty much zero carjackings around here, so no compelling reason to do so. My wife's Expedition doors lock automatically, otherwise I doubt she would either.

Re: Do you lock the doors on your cage?

I normally don't lock the doors while I'm driving unless I feel unsafe. It all depends on where I am and what time of the day it is.

They lock automatically (I can change it so they don't, but see no reason to). If they didn't, I wouldn't, except in bad areas.

Mine lock automatically. On my old truck they didn't, so I made sure the passenger door was always locked, and I tried to remember the driver door. It's a good idea.

Re: Do you lock the doors on your cage?

I have the 15mph automatic locks on my truck, but I disabled it a few days after getting the truck. I feel safe with the doors unlocked, and I have already gone to the passenger side door to get something out and found the door locked waaaaay too many times to tolerate it! The damn auto lock only unlocks the driver door when I put the vehicle in park. If you're carrying something and you already put the keys in your pocket, you have to either dig your keys out and hit the keyless remote, or go all the way around the vehicle to unlock manually, because there is only one keyhole(only on the driver door)!!!!!! I don't carry the keyless remote, because I have too many keys on my keychain to be comforable in my pockets!

There! I'm done venting now!

Re: Do you lock the doors on your cage?

I keep my doors locked all the time when I am in the car. Too many unpredictable circumstances that I don't have to worry when stopped that someone will decided to join me in my car. That's especially true at many shopping malls, bank parking lots, heck, even the grocery store parking lot. As soon as I get in my car, I lock my doors. And, I only unlock my driver's door when I re-enter my locked vehicle. I hear and read about too may women getting accosted in parking lots mall because their car doors were unlocked and not paying attention to the surroundings while they were busy doing other stuff in the vehicle.

There are too many wacko's on the loose and I don't care to interact with any of them. I should be safe in my vehicle and have control over who enters it. Locking the doors is a preventive measure and it's habit for me to lock the doors as soon as I close the door.

I don't see any reason why a woman would want to drive with the doors to the car unlocked. If you're stopped anywhere, it's very easy for someone to enter your unlocked car. It takes a split second for someone to get in. Then what do you do???? The situation can only get worse....

Just my $.05 but better to be safe than sorry.

Re: Do you lock the doors on your cage?

On my car they lock automatically. But on my truck they don't and most of the time I don't lock them, even in the bad neighborhoods (i like living on the edge ). Sometimes I end up locking them by accident when I put my arm up on the door while driving.

Re: Do you lock the doors on your cage?

autolock overhere when speed > 20kph

Had a guy who just got stabbed try jumping into my buddy's car after a gang related incident. After that, we all started locking our doors.

Be fast or be last.
