A simple coin could compromise your car's security

Trending Now

Most people would never think twice about a coin stuck in their car door handle, but a recent report suggests that this seemingly innocuous object could be a sign of impending theft.

According to Demic Blog, if you ever find a coin wedged in your car door handle, it's a sign that someone is planning to steal from your vehicle. The coin is strategically placed by the thief in the passenger door handle, making it less likely for you to notice it if you're driving alone.

The trick is simple but effective. When you unlock your car and drive away, the thief follows you. Once you park and lock your car again, the central locking system fails to engage due to the coin stuck in the handle. This gives the thief free access to your car and any valuables inside.

The best course of action is to always check the passenger door handle before driving. If you find a coin, remove it and consider contacting the police. This simple check could save you from potential theft and loss of valuable items.
