Is it time to change the sound of car alarms?

(KPLR) – In Monday’s “The Way It Oughta Be”, JB wonder if its time to change the sound of an alarm?

This was the sound I heard this weekend. It's called a panic alarm on your car. It's designed to keep anyone from trying to break into your car.

I think it's time for a change.

I heard the alarm and looked. No one was in a panic. No one seemed to even be concerned.

Maybe it's time to change the sound of the alarm. Or maybe they've gone off too often for anyone to take them seriously anymore.

I'm JB, and that's “The Way It Oughta Be”.
