Tea towels, immobilisers, alarms and trackers all ensure cars are kept safe. This was certainly true for my street.
A friend of mine was dropping me home when she noticed that all the cars on my road had tea towels wrapped around the windscreen wipers. Why is this? I had to explain that tea towels were essential in protecting the wipers from the errant crow. The feathered delinquent liked to pick and would destroy wipers.
There’s no reasoning with a crow who has his own special kind of road rage.
