United Kingdom - When temperatures drop below freezing, drivers face the danger of skidding on icy roads. However, on a recent frigid morning in the U.K. recently, commuters discovered there was more to fear than the ice, reports the Association of Mature American Citizens.
Police throughout England reported that the country's car thieves were out in droves. In fact, car owners who popped indoors while their motors were running to de-ice their windshields were calling in to report car thefts at an alarming rate of one every five minutes. It is difficult, at best, to "hot wire" new cars; you need a key. As one wag put it: "to car thieves, frosty mornings are a Christmas gift."
