People often take for granted how great it can be living in the Lone Star State, and unfortunately, that taking for granted occurs on both sides of the law. As much of a blessing it is to live here, you always need to be aware of your surroundings, and that has never been more clear than after seeing this recent armed robbery of a vehicle at an ATM in Houston, Texas.

Seeing footage like this brings a couple things to mind immediately, but one will always stand head and shoulders above all others when it comes to expediting a solution. When will we finally get better crafted ATMs that make it easy for people of all heights and sizes to access the machine without having to leave the car?

Warning, this video of an armed robbery at a Houston, Texas ATM is very graphic.

As you can see from the video, the driver got out of the vehicle to use the ATM, and that made it much easier for a crime of opportunity to occur. It is not difficult to imagine the two perpetrators were lying in wait at that machine for exactly a scenario like this to occur.

Being able to utilize the ATM while remaining inside the car may not have prevented this ambush from happening, but it would have given the driver the option of driving off as the armed men rushed the vehicle. You can get more info on the suspects in this Fox 26 Houston article.
