    SeaLawyer's exactly right. It's something they teach you in your first semester of law school (I'm a lawyer too). There's a famous case where some guy got fed up with hobos breaking into his vacation home and stealing stuff. So he put a shotgun boobytrap on the doors. He didn't want to killl anyone, so he used shot and put it near the floor. Some hobo comes along, gets his knees blown off, but the homeowner ends up being the one really getting screwed.
    Law /= fair. The law is designed for an entire society, and invariably it will be unfair in some circumstances (i.e., should i get a ticket for jaywalking when there are no cars?)
    I don't see why SeaLawyer was attacked. It's not like he's saying these laws are _good_, he's just giving a heads up so you don't get sued/fined/jailed.

    I would recommend using something that has less risk of permanent damage/death. Even though it's one in a million, some criminals have pacemakers/heart conditions. I'd go with something like the really annoying noise, plus (my choice) a smokescreen which makes it impossible to see anything inside the car.

    Personally, I think the law should allow deadly booby traps (like hobo proofing your house with a shotgun). But I don't make the laws.

    Thanks for the cover wooga, although by admitting to being a lawyer, you're apparently inviting unfounded demonization despite your helpful intentions...

    I thought the scene in Robocop was hilarious -- and I WISH the Trunk Monkey was both feasible AND legal... But it ain't. The only way I'd ever use lethal force (and I do legally carry a concealed firearm) on someone attempting to steal my car is if my kids were in it. Then the idiot would for a split second know what 3 .40 caliber Federal Hydrashock slugs can do to a human body...

    lol@ tesla coil and robocop comment

    I like the link provided earlier, I might just get some stickers printed up that has the autotaser image on them there. It is certainly enough to make someone think twice before trying to break in. You can tell my car has money in it from outside, nevermind when you look in the windows. I am also definitely investigating putting airhorns inside the car as well.

    Hi,

    Just wondered if you have managed to fit one of these systems as yet and if you are planning on fitting/supplying them.

    My car got broken into over the weekend and i am now looking for something a 'little' more than a ringing bell!!

    That sucks dude. I've got something in the works, should be done next week. It won't shock them, but I think it'll leave them with some regrets... stay tuned.

    As much as I hate to agree with the lawyers, they are dead on right. You might be wondering how I know this so surely? Well, it's obvious, I slept in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
