Thieves Seek Out Cars Left Running in Driveways (Poll)
Do you leave your car warming up in the morning while you get ready?
With the wind chill making it feel close to zero degrees this week, it's tempting to start your car and leave it running in the driveway while you finish getting ready in the morning.
Police are searching for two cars that were taken from driveways Thursday morning in Cedar Grove. The Acura and Jeep were both reportedly left running and unattended.
A similar theft was reported in West Caldwell on Whitaker Place earlier this month.
West Caldwell Police Chief Michael Bramhall said after the incident, "We always encourage people not to leave their vehicles unattended while running for safety issues as well as for issues such as this."
Besides, modern car engines don't need to be warmed up for more than a couple of minutes, according to Engine Warm-Up 101 on AOL Autos.
