How are they able to break into it so quickly?

Seems like it would be easier to just sweep around it like they do in every place I've lived.

And isn't the transmission locked in park without the key? IDK, maybe not?
I was wondering that. So anyone can put it in neutral and drive off with a tow strap?

There is a park shift release under the little cover near the shifter.

Thanks, I thought about that but that sure makes things easy without a key.

There is a little removable button on the console just in front of the shift lever. Remove the button, push in a screw driver, and voila!, the transmission lock is disabled. Takes five seconds.

You can see him do it. They bang a cheese shaped wedge into the door pillar to bend it back away from the frame (some places use a similar device but it's a pump), and then they use a rod to press the unlock button inside the door.

Freaking unlock button should be disabled........ But then of course they could just grab inside the door handle

Wow, I wonder what damage that does.

Don't you need the key in the ignition turned to ON (or smart key nearby) to unlock the shifter?

No. Every car with an automatic transmission has a small accesses port near the shift lever. Remove that cover, insert a screw driver, and you can shift the transmission out of park. Look on your car and you will see about a dime size access cover on the console near the shift lever.

That access cover is required by law so a car can be easily moved out of the way in case of accident or being immobile.

If you use a Slim Jim (Super Slim Jim Car Opening Tool | PRO-LOK) there should be no damage.

i'd say this for red light cameras and speeding in general since there are some grey areas that can be exploited


but illegal parking is pretty night and day, in this case the towing is a deterrent
