Anti-Theft Protection, Old School

21 12 2014

Beautiful and probably brand new Volkswagen T5 Multivan, spotted last winter in Berlin, with down-to-earth no-nonsense anti-theft protection: Wheel clamp on the rear left wheel, and the front right wheel chained like a bicycle to a street tree guard. New VW buses make it into the top-ten of most stolen cars in Germany every year, and Berlin has the highest rate of stolen cars (per number of insured vehicles) of any German city. So probably not a bad idea if you have to park your precious van on the street. Nice re-use of the chain a few days later in a different spot, locking up the steering wheel to the A-pillar handhold.
