Autos & crime ....scams

I have read posts about pickpockets and have seen them in Rome, Venice, etc. But I would like to know if anyone has had an experience with crime or scams while in their car. We are heading to Sicily and have been warned about groups stopping cars on less-travelled roads. What is your advice for this type of crime? Thank you.

We had no problem in Sicily, but we didn't have a car in Palarmo. We drove around the whole island of Sicily, but stayed on the main roads most of the time. You pay a lot of car insurance, so there must be a thief problem. The only place we had a robbery is in France on the wine road in Alsace. The thieves got 2 suitcases of dirty clothes and a 6 bottle pack of wine. Every thing of importance we were carrying. Next time I will pack my dirty clothes in clear plastic bags and carry my back pack with things like undeveloped film and our medicines.
