    If you’re telling tourists that crime makes renting a car unsafe, then you’re telling them to go vacation somewhere else.

    It was like this four years ago. The car rental agent told us “don’t park the car anywhere with anything in it”. We could not spend anytime, or money, exploring SF because we were driving to Northern California but it would have been nice to spend half a day there. The agent said the criminals knew they would not be arrested so many were breaking into cars to get what they could without penalty.

    Love how they voted to reduce the police force and then turn their heads to the police when something goes wrong instead of defending their own property. You can't have the best of both worlds. Also love how they're acting like they have no idea why this is happening.

    I've been to many cities across the states and never had an issue with my rental car except San Francisco. This place is a disgrace man. If these criminals aren't afraid of doing smash and grabs in the middle of the day, it's pretty clear that the city doesn't give a shit. Such a waste too. It's a nice city but definitely not going back unless this BS is dealt with. If this isn't bad enough, the homeless situation in this city is pretty severe. City officials need to take this seriously.

      @B Babbich the can do their job, but the laws prevent them from cracking down on these criminals. When breaking in to a car is only a slap on the wrist, how can the cops arrest anyone? Look at the laws that the stupid ass politicians put into place! The people of SF voted them in, they can suffer the consequences!

    SFPD doesn't care about car break-in's. When I lived in Japan Town my room mate and I (Who were DOD Police at the time) witnessed a break in and figured out the M.O. of the perpetrator, which we had run off. When we called 911 they refused to send anyone to the then "cold" location, but insisted that the victim would have to come to the station to make a report... they did not want to hear from us as witnesses.

    I was advised by my friends not to leave anything out on my seats when parking in the city over 20 years ago.... Not even a few coins.
    If you have an SUV or something, you should really have a cargo area cover, so the contents can't been seen.
    You don't need a car in San Francisco anyway. Parking is often a pain to find and driving around can annoying. Their transit system is better than most cities in the US. Rideshare companies, bike and scooter rentals, etc are available if you don't want public transit.
    I much prefer to park my car somewhere and just use transit. It is far less stressful than driving around for 20 minutes trying to find a parking space or waiting in traffic to travel a relatively short distance on some overburdened streets.

    I've travelled for business for decades. One thing that has circulated as far as knowledge for business travelers is to never have anything in plain sight in your rental car. Most modern cars including my own provide a means of locking things into the trunk that cannot be accessed by anyone even if they break into the car due the trunk area having a separate locking system. The back seat system that folds down to access the trunk, and the electric trunk unlatching system needs to be lockable with the car key.
    If you do get a rental vehicle with window in the back make sure it has a compartment where you can put things in the rear completely out of site. That's the key. Leave nothing in the car in plain sight of anyone looking in the window.

    Prior to me moving to Alaska recently, I’d been living in California all my life and never have I ever seen it get this ridiculous. This is why many people like myself are leaving Cali in droves. Nothing is being done and all this is just being condoned. I’m fairly sure I’ll be staying up here in Alaska for a while.

  • Gregory Sloan, CLU, ChFC

    A little while back about a year ago I was in San Francisco. I was waiting outside at a restaurant for a table outside and went inside to use the bathroom. While leaving the restaurant passed by the bar and asked if I could buy a beer. The bartender informed me that it was against the law to stand outside by the tables of the restaurant and drink a beer.

    My car was broken into yesterday in Berkeley and I'm so upset that these thugs can commit crimes while facing no punishment at all. I'm just a college student and had nothing of value inside the car. It seems like the law is only applicable to honest citizens while criminals can do pretty much whatever they want with impunity. This has to stop!

    Striking. One of the easiest crimes to commit. You can buy a window popper from Amazon for less than ten bucks, usually the theft takes less than a minute to do, and with mask mandates no one is getting an ID and the getaway cars are usually stolen anyway so calling the cops is not all that helpful. You don’t want to confront them, because they will shoot, and most people only care about their own well being and safety so the most that will be done if they see a crime is “call the cops” and wait the thirty minutes to an hour that it takes for them to respond.
    Crimes like this are getting prominence because we live in a time where the police are being investigated more closely and with scrutiny. Before, the cops were the neighborhood bullies who stalked and preyed upon civilians under mere “suspicion” of crime. We now know that there ‘suspicions’ was just racism and now police precincts everywhere are getting looked at with a lot more scrutiny and bias. This is making the police prioritize their own well being, wealth, and position at the job rather than to be the “crime fighters” they ought to be. One cop makes one public mistake , and the whole city precinct could come under investigation and they certainly don’t want that. Cops have been known to notoriously steal from and bully civilians no matter the race or background; there are thousands of ongoing lawsuits where cops have stolen cash from people who had receipts under suspicion of “drug affiliation”. So the cops who are only looking out for themselves, don’t want to risk getting involved in a situation they cannot fix and cannot solve.
    Such is America 202X. Good luck, and stay safe out there!

This has seen an 88% increase in homicides in major cities, and an even higher increase in other crimes.

    I am from a big city on the east coast and lived in and visited rough neighborhoods around the world, and the 2 cities in the US I would avoid is San Francisco and LA. It is3rd world levels and 100 times worse than NYC and even Mexico City right now. It is almost like California wants to abandon the 2 cities and sell them to China. China probably would not take SF if it was free. The homelessness, open drug use and crime due to a complete lack of law enforcement should make it look like the Purge movie 24/7.

    We stopped visiting San Francisco about ten years ago. We used to go several times a year for Concerts and food and shopping.
    Then I remember it well we were getting Gas on Bayshore and my wife and I looked at one another and said “this isn’t fun anymore”.
    Junkies everywhere and Panhandlers and Homeless. The whole thing just felt like a subsonic vibration of dread.
    And I understand it’s FAR worse than it was ten years ago. It was fun for thirty years or so. My wife was raised in Oakland as a little girl.
    Her parents both came here fleeing Communism from China back in the day. Her Mom was interred on Angel Island as a little girl because of the
    Chinese Exclusion Act.

San Francisco need to get deputy sheriff's constables and all other law enforcement officers to actually get out there and do the job that they're paid to do!!!

      Republicans/Democrats white collar street gangs that don’t give a crap about the poor, but it’s always easy to blame someone . Can anyone tell me since 1970 , when has crime been low/decreased or on a downward spiral or is that just internet talking points to promote your political ideology color. Theses comments , some of you act like your looking into the mind of criminals! Trump was in office 4yrs and crime was still bad . Obama 8 years and crime was still bad . Bush 8 years and crime was still bad . Clinton 8 years and crime was still bad! Your political ideology of what you really want America to be. Let me know when you have a life that makes a difference and not an opinion that doesn’t matter!!!

      Love how the sheeple on both sides are turning this political. 'Lack of affordable education and opportunities' or 'This is the result of defund the police' all a bunch of hyperbolic talking points for anyone living in a protected bubble from reality.
      The truth is, regardless of who they vote for, most cops are lazy and operate under a restricted mental capacity on the job. Whether they're Dem or Rep, cops are lazy and self-serving. They are mentally trained to only follow orders and not deviate from that direction. They are trained to not think for themselves, and that the positive public perception and continuation of their department takes precedent above anything else.
      That's how you get to a state of policing that we're in now. Let's imagine that at least 75% of general population has told a little white lie or turned the other way at some point in our lives. Take that same 75%, and thru them badges and power. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.
      Police don't wanna do anything about the break-ins, it creates a bad look politically for the current administration. Ushers in voters who will swing the pendulum towards the side of heavy-handed policing, no oversight, and increased department budgets. Most officers have authority complex. How dare people ask for accountability and expect officers to do a better job than the current below mediocrity level of standard that applies across this country. If it's not drug related, your local law enforcement agency doesn't care.
      If you can't draw a direct correlation between the behaviors of politicians and police officers, then you're among the blind masses that truly believe in our 'pillars of government' and the romanticized propaganda of how perfect Americans are from the founding of this country to today.
