A: I'm really sorry to hear about the situation with your boyfriend. Taking your vehicle without permission is a serious issue, and his threat to total it if you call the cops is very concerning. Your safety and well-being are the most important things to consider right now.

Firstly, ensure you are in a safe place. If you feel threatened or unsafe, find a secure location where you can stay, away from your boyfriend. Reach out to friends, family, or a local support network for immediate help and support.

Consider contacting the authorities despite his threats. Explain the situation clearly, including the threat he made. The police can offer protection and help recover your vehicle. Additionally, you might want to seek legal advice to understand your options and protect your rights. Your safety is paramount, so take the necessary steps to ensure you are protected.
