We were surprised at the weekend that someone had to get help from the police on the phone because he could not get out of his car.
The police have launched a lawsuit against a man who locked a woman in a car in one day in Verőce, said the Pest County Police Chief on Monday at the police website.
The story is that Sunday noon a woman asked for help from the police, saying that she could not get out of a hotbed because the doors were closed.
The police in Vereto soon found the car, broke through one of their windows and released the woman from the hot cabin. Based on the data so far, there is a suspicion of a crime, and the Vác Police Department commenced proceedings against a 24-year-old man.
Hvg.hu also reported this case, not knowing that the woman had been locked in the car. Comments on this article showed that this was the case with others.
We searched for the Pest County Police Headquarters, where no details of the case were reported, and therefore no type of car that can not be left without a key or remote control, even if someone wants to.
We also called a car service, where they were more public and said:
Ford, Opel, Volkswagen models, too, if the door is closed from the inside with a remote control - typically double-clicking - completely lock the car. None.
However, if someone can not open the doors from the inside because the battery in the key / remote control is empty, ie the encoder does not work, it can get off because if the ignition is switched on, the doors can then be opened.
So it seems that a prisoner can be imprisoned in a car that incorporates some electronics in front of the mechanical door opener that controls the opening or closing.
Though it may be a theft or robbery protection, it does not seem to be the most optimal from a life-saving point of view, as is the case in the weekend case.
