That's why I'm asking True, but you make your choices and take the risks. Me, I drive a lot in the city and spend quite a bit of time stationary at traffic lights. I think there is far more chance of a hijacker jumping in and either pinching the car or my wallet/wifes purse than there is of an accident in which I can't open the door. Actually, it's more for my wife's safety when she is driving alone than for me. Two of my friends wives have had a guy jump in at traffic lights, grab the purse then jump out again. -- Regards, Peter Wilkins (
