* GenreSavvy: In later episodes it's getting more and more common for suspects to mention the possibility of being in a bait car or even holding the door ajar to prevent being magnetically locked in.

** They'll also abandon the operation if they find an already stolen car, or a more serious crime being committed. Even if someone takes it while they're gone, they can track it wherever it goes.

* DrivingStick: Averted: one of the (L.A.?) bait cars in early seasons is a pre-Tacoma Toyota Truck[[hottip:*: a Hilux, although that name wasn't used in North America]] with a manual transmission and surprisingly nobody (that we got to see) learned to drive it as they were stealing it.

* ImplausibleDeniability: 99% of the people caught in the Bait Car will deny stealing it, usually making up an excuse stating they were taking it to the police station (despite the cameras clearly showing them talking about how they are going to get money off of it). There is even one memorable guy where after getting out denied ever seeing or being in the car prior to said arrest even after the police stated they had video footage.
