If you're a good car owner and follow a reasonable maintenance schedule, you likely change your oil at least twice a year. Really scrupulous drivers do it more often, using the traditional "every 3,000 miles" rule.

A security camera belonging to the business Meyer the Hatter in the 100 block of St. Charles Avenue in New Orleans captured an attack early Saturday morning similar to the mugging of the Boston-area tourists on Bienville Street in French Quarter.
