On Nov.18th 2008 a friend and I were robbed when a 6ft 5 black man got into the back seat of my car. I had cracked my window, but when I put my 2008 Pontiac G6 in park all of my doors unlocked. As long as it is in gear all doors are locked, but when put in park it unlocks automatically. If this would have been different and I could have chosen to lock or unlock my doors then odds are we would have never been robbed or harmed. Due to the fact that I couldn't get back into my car the dealer gave me a different new car. It is a 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix GT, and it also has the automatic lock feature. This unnerves me terribly after what happened to me. I do not drive my car alone because of the fear I have now. I know that maybe all vehicles are not like this but I also have a 2002 Chevrolet trailblazer and it is the same way, locks when in gear, but unlocks for park. There is no benefit to this happening because if there was an accident, and the car is in gear then how could authorities get in to the victim, other than breaking the windows in" this is a feature that should be up to the driver of the car, just as an airbag switch can be turned on or off at the drivers wish, so should the locks. I have two beautiful daughters and one will be getting license in 2 years and I want to have the assurance that she will have locked doors at all times when she is maybe just sitting somewhere talking with friends, or is parked waiting on another friend to arrive. What would you do if it was your wife, daughter, or mother" the robbery put me in the hospital for 4 weeks to try and get over the trauma of the robbery. I am still to this day on medications and seeing a therapist weekly. If anything good comes out of this I want to know that for all women we can drive and park and still be safe. The world we live in today is not a good one, and we must take all of the safety measures we can to insure that no one else has to go through what my friend and I did on that night.
