If someone wishes to go in the house & leave their car sat outside with the engine running then that is their own fault when it gets nicked .
if its on a drive why not put a blow heater in it for 10 minutes to thaw it out before going to work , other option is to warm the engine up while sitting in the car , either option is better than leaving it running so some tea leaf can be away with it .
Insurers are well within their rights to refuse to pay out when a car is nicked while left running unattended & yet it happens every time we have a cold snap , someone leaves their car running then cries on when its been nicked.
