It is proper to drive with the doors locked or unlocked?
My wife and I had a debate today. I say car doors should be locked when driving. I heard a few years ago that a car was more structurely sound in a crash with the doors locked. She says she wants to be able to get out in case of a crash. She said insurance companies have changed their mind and they don't believe doors should be locked. I had 2 cars that automatically locked when I put them in drive, but cars these dayy dont seem to have that feature.
They should be locked all times even when not driving.The insurance company dont believe because it a shield for the claims and a loopholes to strengthen their disapprovals.
I wouldn't care what the insurance company says, I try and keep mine locked when driving, especially if I have my kids with me. I'm more worried about someone trying to open my doors and jump in or something. Plus it doesn't seem to be a bad thing if they are locked and there is an accident. If anything it's a plus.
Those are good points about why keeping them unlocked would good. However I agree with you and everyone posting here as well. In the situation where you need to get out, more than likely the window and/or windshield may be broken for you to climb out anyway. But unless there is a gas leak that could cause a fire to the car after an accident, theres no reason to get out if you have been injuried too. It's better to stay put than risk further harm to yourself from moving.
My doors automatically lock and I'm comfortable with them being locked. With all the crazy car-jackings and just plain crazies going on one can't be too careful. Actually most cars give you the choice in the set up. I have a double click to unlock all the doors. After all if you're being chased, my one click opens the drivers door keeping the bad guys out. Double click opens them all - providing they're friendlies.
It is proper to drive with your car doors locked. The advantages are more than the disadvantages i.e no thug can open the car at traffic stop and mug you, while involved in an accident you wouldn't be thrown out, the kids can open the doors which are not locked and fall off as the car moves. It feels safe and secure.
My car doors are locked at all times except when I am getting in and out, of course. I feel like that is safer to avoid break ins and car jackings. Several years ago I was in a parking garage and about to get in my car when two men pulled up behind me and blocked me in. It was an odd place for them to stop. I got in my car and locked the door. As soon as I was in the car one of the guys was at my window. He asked me how to get out of the garage. I yelled through the window to keep going up and they left. It was all very odd and I wonder what would have happened differently if I had not been locked in my car.
