When your car gets burnt

You live in Jaffa really close to the sea, have good relations with your neighbors and park your car next to that of the neighbor. Who happens to be involved in some shady business of one kind or another.
So one night his car is torched and yours, standing right next to his, goes up in flames as well.

No more car. My friend's that is, i ride a bike.

These things are not covered by any insurance I suppose?

Suddenly you find out there are all those tiny small letters in your insurance claim, that make it unclear what will happen.

the kids around my side knock off everyone's moped mirrors.. then dont steal them.. they just break them off and throw them on the ground..

Park it somewhere, uhh, safe (as inside a locked entrance)

This winter is has been fun around here to light conifers, these trees are highly flammable and there were some near misses on housing.
Unlike in your situation these kids have been taken in and do have some minor problems now.
Another evergreen is the kicking off of car's mirrors.
Get friendly with the local thug or find somebody with something like a Rottweiler- guarded square.

Torching a car is usually a warning sign.
Things in Jaffa can be very touchy.

i dont drive a moped - i have a car..

i hope it remains untouched..

i dont think i should have to park in a locked up space.. the streets should be safe.. or made safe..

In that case it is best not to mingle with the local mobsters nor to park near their vehicles, if, you too might have a damaged car.
If I were you I would have a good look at the rules of my car insurance
first.
