As I was driving to the downtown area to attend the meet and greet, I saw a portable sign in the vicinity of Telus Field. It stated that there are bait cars in the area, and anyone who breaks into a car could be in deep doodoo.
I'm so darned impressed that bait cars are in Edmonton. The creeps who steal cars should be very worried.
Bait cars have been a very successful car theft prevention program in British Columbia. If you've seen the videos taken of car thieves, you'll understand what kind of losers we're dealing with.
The bait cars have video recording equipment that tapes the jerks
as they steal the vehicles, but more importantly, the police who are in the area of the stolen vehicles can disable the vehicle by radio, which prevents a high speed chase.
Can you say "gotcha?"
I knew you could.
