Did you know that over fifty per cent of United States citizens prefer to enter and leave their homes through their garage door as opposed to their main door? One would think this would only be so in the parts of the country with rough climate and terrible weather conditions so people try to protect themselves as much as possible from exposing themselves to extremely low or extremely high temperatures. But it is like this everywhere, including California and nearby places with excellent climate. Most people argue how it is more convenient for them to stay in the home once they enter the home. It makes no sense for them to store the car, get out from the garage and then to enter their home once again. And if you think about it it actually makes lot of sense. Since garage door are usually placed on the back side of the hose we actually do make few steps to enter our homes. Another things is that if we do not keep our garage door clicker with all our other keys then we may spend half an hour on our driveway looking for all the keys.
Having established this, it is quite obvious that the garage door are not any more just the entrance for our cars but they are also our main surrogate entrance so to say, and the same way we would not leave our doors opened and unlocked just for anyone to enter the same way we should not leave our garage doors opened. Even if you happen to live in the safest neighborhood on the planet you should still make sure your garage doors are always properly closed and secured.
