Just a quick question, if you have a manual transmission, are on a hill, and have the doors and top off, what's stopping someone from taking it out of gear and releasing the hand brake to let your car roll down the hill?

Common human decency. But as that’s been absent in this country the last few years, the answer is: Nothing.

Parking with your wheels turned to avoid it. Seriously though, have you ever heard of this happening to anyone?

Well, you should turn your wheels toward the curb when parked on a hill, but, that being said a dbag could still muscle the steering straight first (though, they might not think about it or want to fight the steering wheel just to be an asshat). If you want to make that impossible, get one of these: https://www.amazon.com/Master-Lock-256DAT-Pedal-Wheel/dp/B000BN6UR8

Turn wheels San Francisco style.

In all my years with a manual, never had anyone mess with it.

What's to stop someone coming up and bashing your windows in with a baseball bat. Nothing. Luckily it rarely happens unless you really piss off your girlfriend.

A manual transmission is a 'Millenial Anti-Theft Device' so I leave it in gear. Everyone knows how a parking brake works but most non-manual drivers wouldn't know to press the clutch and take it out of gear.

I leave it in gear and with the parking brake set. Luckily in flat ass north Texas, there aren't many hills here so I guess I've been lucky.

What's surprising is how often this question has come up.

People either live in Gotham or they just live their lives worrying about too much shit.
