  • Car Alarm Disturbances

    I live in a brand new Apartment Complex and recently Ive been told that my wifes new car's alarm is always going off. Other residents complain to the property security....I just got a visit from the security guard telling me I need to do something about the alarm. The Alarm is a factory alarm set by Honda I dont think its over sensitive, and I dont want to make it any less sensitive. The way I have i have it now is that the alarm will not activate unless the car is moved or bumped into or door handle is tugged on.

    There have been a few cases of vehicles being stolen out of this complex...one being my co workers truck. The security company is telling me that theyll call SDPD to come out and tow my wifes car. I obviously dont want that and I dont want to continue to annoy other residents.

    I told the security company if they can give me in writing that theyll have a guard watching my wifes car 24/7 and give me in writing that her car wont be stolen then **** ill leave it unlocked 24/7.

    Other people have the same type of alarm which the car horn blasts when alerted....I think as soon as these people hear an alarm they assume its my wifes car. Id park the car outside but I have two young kids she lugs around that are in car seats still and parking outside would be a hard for her esp with the two devil children I have.

    I am open to suggestions (serious suggestions) on to make everyone happy, but not jeopardizing the safety of my wife and her car.

    Whats the ord. or cvc for towing a vehicle with a car alarm that goes off anyway??
    What if quotas did exist?!

    It's got to go off for 20 minutes continuously for us to tow it.

            From the vehicle code

            22651.5. (a) Any peace officer, as defined in Chapter 4.5
            (commencing with Section 830) of Title 3 of Part 2 of the Penal Code,
            or any regularly employed and salaried employee who is engaged in
            directing traffic or enforcing parking laws or regulations, may, upon
            the complaint of any person, remove a vehicle parked within 500 feet
            of any occupied building of a school, community college, or
            university during normal hours of operation, or a vehicle parked
            within a residence or business district, from a highway or from
            public or private property, if an alarm device or horn has been
            activated within the vehicle, whether continuously activated or
            intermittently and repeatedly activated, the peace officer or
            designated employee is unable to locate the owner of the vehicle
            within 20 minutes from the time of arrival at the vehicle's location,
            and the alarm device or horn has not been completely silenced prior
            to removal.

                Buy a better alarm, the CODE brand alarm I had installed would give plesant little warning chirps if bumped the handle tested etc. 10 bumps in a short time frame or an actual glass break or door open and it would scream for help and alert a remote pager that could be carried into the building.

                A decent alarm installed is going to cost you less than paying for one tow fee and the impound lot charges.

                  I'd turn the sensitivity down because alarms only matter once the doors are forced open and the burglarly commences.

                      Willowdared haha yea I said that because the Security Dispatcher wasnt too understanding lol.

                      I had to lay it on her thick. I said "LADY listen im calling to try to figure out a crossroad here and all your saying is PD will be called to tow it."

                        You've got to be kidding me. If you're really an exSDSO, and while working you heard that on the recieving end, what do you think your reaction would have been?

                        Back in Los Angeles, I used to really enjoy towing cars with their alarms going off. Did not bother me in the least. I think the day that law took effect I was one of the first to do it, on my shift, in Hollywood. I even ripped one off whose alarm system chirped out loud, merely indicating it was armed every 15 seconds. I drove back the next night and saw the car parked absolutely silent.

                        Take it back to the dealer, see if the sensitivity can be adjusted. If not, you'll end up having it towed a dozen more times more than it will ever be stolen.

                        Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

                        Three things I know for sure: (1) No bad deed goes unrewarded, (2) No good deed goes unpunished, and (3) It is entirely possible to push the most devoted, loyal and caring person beyond the point where they no longer give a 5h!t.

                          Bro I didnt know that you are allowed to physically disable the alarm...if I was the owner youd be paying for a new alarm...or at least your Department would be.

                            To save everyone a headache Ill probably take it to a friend who can change the alert to some sort of chirp instead of the loud horn.

                              Keith isnt talking about actually ripping out the alarm system.....he is talking about 'ripping off' the car and impounding it for the CVC section.

                              We get calls about nuisance alarms all the time. I would tow the car each and every time if it fell into the parameters of 22651.5 CVC.
