I have the auto locks on my doors and I truely hated them to start with also... but now.. I will not own a vehicle without. My neice was on her way to be to work by 5 am. As she was pulling her car out of their garage.. a man jumped into her vehicle..forced her at knife point to drive to a remote area..and she was beat and raped. She was only 16. So she lives with this fear daily..she is like me...they lock..or she doesn't own.
