How does the BMW " Attract attention to the efforts of an unauthorized
person to enter or move a vehicle by means other than a key"? This was clearly meant to mean flashing lights and blaring horns or sirens, not a choreographed dancing alphabet spelling out "SCREW YOU" on the dash. Does the exemption require just "one of the above"?
