I'm sorry that this happened to her, but I haveto ask 2 questions....
1) Does she need a GPS to figure out how to get to work from her own home?
2) If she already knows the way, why didn't she take precautions to ensure that the GPS was hidden from the **** who stole it?
Your title was perfect - making yourself less of a target. If you don't need the GPS on your daily commute, leave it at home or secure it in the car out of sight.
Yesterday, I went to a local store in a small strip mall. I pulled up next to a car, on its passenger side. As I got out of mine, I couldnt help but notice -
1) An unlocked passenger door
2) A ladies purse sitting on the front seat
3) A cell phone sitting on the front seat, next to the purse.
There was NO ONE around and NO ONE would have seen a thing. The angle I was at in the lot would have totally protected me. I could have very easily got down low, opened the door, and helped myself to the goodies. It amazes me that people allow themselves to be victims. I see it all the time....valuables laying on the seat, a car left running and unattended while in 7-11.....people need to take some responsibility for themselves.
