I park my car in front of my yard because there's room for only 1 car in my driveway and my dad parks there. My street is a small, quiet one but still kids tend to steal things from the cars here. The car is always locked but there are some things I can't lock inside. I've had a blinker cover stolen and my dad (who used to park where I do now) had his antenna and even horn stolen on separate occasions. Yesterday someone stole one of my custom tire-valve caps and I'm really beginning to get annoyed.
I thought about placing a fake camera on the front of my house and/or a light that turns on when people pass by but there's too much distance (15 feet) between my yard fence (where the car is) and my house so I don't think it will be effective.
I'm sure it wouldn't take a lot to stop this from happening but I'm just not sure how to approach the problem.
