Emergencies happen when one least expects them, and when they arise they often seem to compound one’s problems. Being locked out of your car is a situation that would fall into such a category. It is also extremely frustrating as you wait helplessly for a glimmer of hope.
Leaving the keys in the ignition will not lock out a modern car, but there are still several situations that can create a similar situation. Common examples include malfunctioning transponders, lost key-chains, wiring faults in the central locking system, and more. Such situations can take a grim turn if you have a pet or your toddler that gets locked inside the car. Barring such an extreme life or death scenario, it would be unwise to try and break into the car yourself, or worse try to break a window. The best aid in such a situation comes from an emergency locksmith. It is a good idea to keep the phone number of a reputed locksmith saved for just such an emergency.
