@B1KMusic That's not always an option. Sometimes you have to lock it. Anyway, this comment thread is getting long and we're veering off point. I realize that's totally my fault for starting this discussion in the first place, but we should wrap it up.

@Unsliced I didn't know a "van" was different in the UK than it is in the US. What do you call the vehicle that we in the US call a van, i.e., a passenger vehicle that typically seats 8-10 people?
