I dunno. I kind of admired the victim's reaction to that. I can only hope I'm that zen if I were face that situation.

I think the driver showed remarkable restraint. He didn't freak out or run after the vehicle. He just stood there, like, "Welp, there goes my car."

He probably turned it off, but had the key fob in his pocket and was still close enough.

And then he just stood there.

This is why you remove your keys from the car when you exit it, even if it's only to pump gas. They probably got the key to his house or apartment, too, and they could look at papers in the car and find out where he lives.

Wow, y'all geniuses - yeah start shooting in the middle of a farking GAS STATION.  With people actively pumping fuel.  What could possibly farking go wrong?  And that's not even accounting for all the other randos standing around well within max range if you manage to miss the perp and the pumps.  Use your head.

Trying to think whether if he had the key fob in his pocket and was standing near the car pumping gas if someone can start the car because the key is close enough to trigger the sensor.

Not really something I have ever tried to do.

Maybe. I know there's a bit of leeway on being close enough with the key fob to unlock the doors or open the trunk, but to start the engine? Generally there's no legitimate reason to be wanting to start the engine from very far away.

This happened to someone who works for me, it was scary how fast the car Thieves became the guys in his apartment.
Fortunately nobody was home and he caught them on high def security camera so they got arrested.

A lot of people in colder climates start their cars and let them idle forever before driving off in the morning.  "Remote start" is even an actual feature on some cars.

I read about this in the old Car Talk newspaper column once. People do it to say 10 seconds starting it again.

/Click and Clack were NOT okay with doing this.

Feels kinda staged... i know my car always locks the passenger door every time i put it in gear (or close the door, or do anything else really) and doesnt unlock it again until you specifically go out of your way and tell it to... even then it just locks it again a few minutes later.

Every time someone gets in the passenger seat we have to play a game of door-lock whack-a-mole first. Its really kinda annoying & i wish i could turn it off.

we have a Pilot and I feel certain I've been unable to start the engine when my wife was standing with the fob in her purse at the back door buckling a car seat.

well when you don't violate every posted recommendation of the gas station and general common sense, you sort of just get to pull up, pump as much or a little fuel as you want, watch Maria Menounous on GSTV and then drive away without waiting for service like an invalid.

I believe a police report is necessary to file an insurance claim.

Please answer the question about how you know my nickname.
