PostSubject: Petty Thieving   Sat Nov 10, 2018 7:13 pm

A few days ago I went out in the car and after driving for about 5 minutes the tyre pressure warning light came on. After months of warm weather, autumn has arrived and night time temperatures have fallen. The instrument display showed 3 tyres at 32 psi and one tyre at 31 psi. I usually keep them all at 36 psi, but had neglected to check them for quite some time.
 
When I returned home to inflate them with my trusty Michelin 12v compressor – I found that 3 of the valve dust caps were missing.  The last time I inflated the tyres there were 2 dust caps missing which I thought might have vibrated loose - so I really tightened them all.
 
Déjà vu – there are petty thieves about.
 
Because they are only plastic and cost pence not pounds, I find this more irritating than if they had stolen the whole car. I purchased 8 dust caps from Ebay for a total of £1.99 including postage to ensure I have spares in the boot for the next time it happens.


[Go on - you know you want to - pop out and check your wheels].

Don't forget that I live in the crime-ridden midlands. They will nick anything.
