Fire crackers under or in automobiles is the new way to make it look like terrorist had you in mind. Parking lots can start a chain reaction if one car gets blown up by powerful firecrackers.

And if you drive with your window down, you're a fool on and around the 4th of july... How so? Someone with guts might want to toss in a lit fire cracker or smoke bomb, then pull off.
This has been an ongoing thing for years, at least were I live. Be real careful indeed.
I also heard that locally, our fine Men in Blue, are in no tolerance mode for fireworks that "leave the ground". In the past, say five years ago, they let us do whatever on the 4th, as long as you didn't do anything to directly cause damage or fires.
Of coarse, being a former pyro head on the 4th, i used to get the really goods ones, but now there is a $500.00 ticket to pay once your neighbor's rat on you and call the police.
What a shame, but it's the idiots like the "tossing lit firework a**holes" that brought it to this.
