Dear PoPville – Anyone Ever Hear of a Fog Horn Car Alarm

Photo by PoPville flickr user ekelly80

Dear PoPville,

The other night three cars (at least) between 14th and 15th and Euclid (alley behind Euclid) were broken into last night. Smash and grab style, with cd’s flung around my car, glove box opened, etc. They got my GPS- I know, I know… don’t leave it in your car (even hiding). Have the regular damage you’d expect, and it’s just a sad morning. Roommate’s car was broken into at the same spot several months back.

Anyway, the responding cop told me that I should go to a “rim shop” and buy an after-market (?) fog horn car alarm. Has anybody ever heard of these before? Would they really deter a would-be robber?
