Quite - as has been pointed out, they're not often found on modern vehicles. When I think it appropriate, I used a steel cable passed through the spare wheel: It's not fixed to the vehicle, but it would make an inconvenient accessory to any firearm.
Do the police have nothing better to do say perhaps CATCH criminals?
But is it?Usually followed by:-
"I pay your wages".
One of the fundamental roles of the Police is to prevent crime. How anyone can object to a "common sense" reminder of your (UK) obligations to manage your own security is beyond me. I do however take the point about anchoring to the vehicle's chassis - not always possible I agree - but I am not going to write to the Times about it.
Looks like someone went to the same university as my wife.
This week's entry for word of the week and yes I had to google it...car was built post circa 1950 and has monocoque construction it doesn't have a chassis.
