PREVENTING AUTO THEFT
A car can be stolen in less than 60 seconds and most of those stolen are never recovered. More than a million cars are stolen every year, which equates to about one car every 27 seconds. Taking a few extra security precautions can help you avoid being a victim. Your car is an expensive investment so it’s important to know how to avoid car theft and keep your car safe.
Whether you’re parking on the street or in a garage, opt for well-lit areas. Park under garage security lights or street lamps; thieves are less likely to target your vehicle if they can be seen easily and will draw attention to themselves.
Thieves are more likely to try to steal cars close to the parking lot or garage exits, because they will have a faster getaway. Try to park in the middle of a row of cars in a heavily trafficked area of the lot or garage. Making sure your car blends in is a good strategy to avoid car theft.
