How to lose a Clio...

Just stopped at the Co-op this morning for a newspaper when a boy-racer in a Clio pulled up.

He left the car running while he went to the cash machine - about 6 yards. He finished at the machine then went into the Co-op - the engine still running!

I had two opportunities to remove his car - good job I'm honest

He got away with it today, but in that area - he must be on borrowed time.

Anyone want a souped up Clio?

Excuse me officer but someone stolen my car.....uuuhhh
What an idiot. I even lock mine when I go into a garage on my own after filling with fuel.
I wonder what he would say to the insurance company? They don't take too kindly to t***s like that....

It's not only a very stupid thing to do,but I'm sure it's illegal????.

Hopefully someone will nick his tarted up heap and the insurance company will stick two fingers up at him!!.

(Sorry,rant over....)

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

I think that would fall under "negligent" and would therefore invalidate his cover.

Although that said, I have left mine unlocked all night before. Luckily nobody noticed.
