Warning : Car stealing modus operandi

Heard about this from a friend.

Seems there is a new technique going around. a motorbike comes and hits a car from behind. When you get out of the car to check your damage/yell at the other driver, another associate slides into your driver seat and drives away. The motorbike guy also speeds away simultaneously.

I can't be 100% sure about the accuracy of this information as it hasn't happened to me or anyone that I know directly. But it is a good idea to take your keys out of the ignition and with you, if you step out of your car for any reason.

A more common problem is breaking into cars to steal stuff. I knew someone who was parked in downtown Cairo, they opened his trunk and stole the spare tire. I imagine cassette and CD players are the target #1.

Don't leave important stuff in the car, even if it was locked.
