Avoid becoming a victim of vehicle burglary
Most cars are taken by amateurs who can be stopped fairly easily. You can increase your protection against this type of crime by taking the following sensible precautions:
• An unlocked car is an open invitation to a car thief. Lock up when you leave your car, and take the keys with you.
• Lock the trunk or tailgate.
• Close all windows — professional thieves have tools that unlock cars through the smallest openings.
• Be sure vent or wind-wing windows are shut tight.
• When you park the car, remove cellular phones, cassette players and other valuablepossessions . Do not leave gift-wrapped packages or cameras lying on the seat. Lock all valuables in your trunk or take them with you.
• Lock your car even if you are making a quick stop at the gas station, convenience store or mini-mall.
