A million motorists leave their cars filled up with petrol and with the keys in the ignition every day. The cars are sitting in petrol stations while drivers pay for their fuel. The Automobile Association（A.A） has discovered that cars are left unattended for an average three minutes and sometimes longer as drivers buy drinks ， sweets， cigarettes and other consumer items .With payment of credit cards becoming more and more common， it is not unusual for a driver to be out of his car for as long as six minutes， providing the car theft with a golden opportunity.
For more than ten years there has been a big rise in car crime than in most other types of crime. An average of more than two cars a minute are broken into or stolen in the UK. Car crime accounts for almost a third of all reported offenses with no signs that the trend is slowing down.
Although there are highly professional criminal involved in car theft， almost 90 percent of car theft is committed by the opportunists. Amateur thieves are aided by our own carelessness. The A.A. recommends locking up whenever you leave the car and for however short a period. A partially open sunroof or window is a further come-on to thieves.
There are many other traps to avoid .The A.A. has fond little awareness among drivers about safe parking. Most motorists questioned made no efforts to avoid parking in quiet spots -just the places thieves love. The A.A. advises drives to park in places with people around -thieves don't like audiences.

Amongst the most popular books being written today are those which are usually classified as science fiction. Hundreds of titles are published every year and are read by all kinds of people. Furthermore， some of the most successful films of recent years have been based on science fiction stories.
It is often thought that science fiction is a fairly new development in literature， but its ancestors can be found in books written hundreds of years ago. These books were often concerned with the presentation of some form of ideal society， a theme which is still often found in modern stories.
Most of the classics of science fiction， however， have been written within the last hundred years. Books by writers such as Jules Verne and H.G. Wells， to mention just two well-known authors， have been translated into many languages.
Modern science fiction writers don't write about men from Mars or space adventure stories. They are more interested in predicting the results of technical developments on society and the human mind； or in imagining future worlds which are a reflection of the world which we live in now. Because of this their writing has obvious political undertones.
In an age where science fact frequently overtakes science fiction， the writers may find it difficult to keep ahead of scientific advances. Those who are sufficiently clear-sighted to see the way we are going， however， may provide a valuable lesson on how to deal with the problems which society will inevitably face as it tries to master its new technology.
