San Francisco car break-ins are so common, city’s district attorney proposes reimbursing residents whose windows are smashed

The San Francisco district attorney is proposing creating a $1.5 million fund to help car break-in victims pay for smashed windows in their vehicles.

If the proposal passes, the fund could be the first of its kind in the US.

The city is in the midst of a car break-in epidemic, with 25,667 reports made in 2019.
