If you have a Honda and dont have a garage, beware of thieves that are going around stealing radar sensors from vehicles. We live in Mamaroneck and last month 3 Hondas at our residential building, including mine, had the radar sensor ripped out of the front bumper. We caught it on camera and filed a police report. They are targeting mostly Civics and Accords.
