In Texas, if you leave your keys in your car, running or not, and a kid steals that car, you are liable, to a degree, for the damage he may cause
Source? And are you equally liable if you don't set the parking brake?

I don't source everything I state. I'm old and time is precious. I share information that I am positive about. However, you could have found the same info in a shorter period of time than it took to respond. LOL... But, this time, here's an article for those that don't know the basic laws for operating a motor vehicle in Texas: https://www.carinsurance.com/Articles/l ... s-law.apsx And yes, you are exposed to both criminal and civial actions if damage results, or if a by-the-book law enforcement officer can tell you failed to set your brake.
