Video of anti-theft device for VW Polos leaves peeps sceptical: “Someone already has a way of removing it”
In other news about VW Polos, Briefly News previously reported that a social media user responded to the great concern of vehicle theft in Mzansi by sharing a video of an anti-theft device for Volkswagen Polos.
The video posted by @peche_africa on Twitter provided in-depth detailed instructions on how to install and remove the foot pedal locker correctly on a Polo Vivo. The video has many users concerned about the effort that goes into using the device and whether it will really help in deterring criminals.
Others even said the instructional video would help criminals figure out how to remove it. While the device is used for a good purpose, many online users are not convinced it will be effective in curbing crime
