Simple Prevention Tips

Most vehicle crime is preventable. It can take as little as 10 seconds for a thief to steal something from your car. The best way to protect your belongings is to lock your car whenever you leave it. Other things you can do include:

  • Removing everything from the car; do not leave a jacket where it can be seen.
  • Closing the sunroof along with the windows when you leave.
  • Store car ownership information in your home, not your car.
  • Having a routine to ensure you always take the keys out of the ignition.
  • Taking removable stereos and navigation equipment with you.

Where you park can make a big difference to the safety of your car and your belongings.
