YANBU. Somebody in my road has one that is set off by passing HGVs, or gently falling leaves angry

Although I do look out of the window to see who needs to go on my shittlist so I suppose I could in theory be a witness.

Having been listening to one sounding off in the car park during our meal, I mentoned to my dh as we were leaving that clearly nobody is worried that their car is being stolen, as it was still going off.
Chap on the table we were passing said 'oh it's mine. I've given up with the bloody thing!'

The sound is so ubiquitous that almost everyone tries to ignore it, so it's hard to see that an alarm is much of a deterrent. I do wish people with very sensitive car alarms would have them adjusted or disabled.
