The police, who won’t enforce Advanced Stop Lines, and who take little interest in the epidemic of mobile phone drivers, or the huge numbers of uninsured drivers on the roads, have nevertheless found the time to visit the homes of local BMW owners. But then “car crime” to the cops has always meant theft from or of a sacred object, not maniac drivers.
POLICE are warning BMW owners to protect their vehicles against theives who are targeting the cars for their airbag units.
Officers from the Chingford Green Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) have been tracking down BMW owners to make them aware of the recent thefts.
But a BMW driver without an airbag will drive far more carefully than one with an airbag, so in reality these thieves are making a major contribution to road safety and should be encouraged.
