I don't know why this is not common (except for the gas bit..I wish) , 'Anti hijack' was common in South Africa even 30 years ago. Usually a simple timer that cut the fuel pump off a set time after the drivers door was opened with the engine running. The idea was that if the driver was ordered out of her car at gunpoint the door would be opened ,the timer would start and the bad guy would be sitting 5 miles away in a dead car within minutes. There were also simple versions of the now widely acclaimed Ghost software. Silly things like the indicator stalk had to be in the left position and foot on the brake before the car would start etc. Ghost is nothing new.How about a system that if the car is broken into then after 1 or 2 minutes all the doors lock and a canister of phosgene gas is released.
Two fold benefit, a reduction in car theft and also the prison population.
