Car alarms… not worth it any more?

It seems to me that car alarms have lost most of their usefulness. It’s been years since a car alarm has really startled me, and probably even longer since one of those alarms has indicated an actual burglery attempt. At this point, I doubt they’re even a useful deterrent after so many years of constant false alarms…

So, I think it’s time to update the car alarm. While having it automatically dial the police or a security agency (like is common with home alarms) would be nice, what about a system that locks the doors and releases a gas of some sort that would render the burgler unconscious? Not exactly humanitarian, but it would be mighty fun!

Any other good ideas for new versions of the car alarm?
