One more reason to bike to work.


Since last Friday afternoon, three of our co-workers vehicles have had their catalytic converters stolen from their vehicles while parked in the parking lot (Bldgs. A & I). In all cases, the victim vehicles were all Toyota trucks (ease of access to the under-body and converter). In such cases, the thieves are primarily interested in selling the semi-precious metals that are contained in the catalytic converters.

I interviewed for a job in south Florida. The engineering team took me out to lunch so we went out to the parking lot, where I noticed everybody's car had The Club.

"Umm, is car theft a big problem here?"

"Not really. It's probably been three or four years since I've had a car stolen."

I remember thinking to myself: I'm glad I bike to work.
