Tip of the Week: Would You Keep Your Money in a Glass Bank?
Would you ever consider keeping your money in a bank with no vault and surrounded by glass walls? Most of us would surely say ‘no’. But the fact is, when we leave high valued items in our vehicles, that’s exactly what we are doing. Vehicles are not a reliable and safe way to secure money, computers, cell phones, purses, back packs, or any high value item. When these items are left in plain view, a thief needs only to smash a window to gain access and take the item. We are then not only inconvenienced by the loss of the item, but we will also have to deal with repairing our vehicles. Whenever the opportunity allows, take all high valued items with you whenever leaving your vehicle unattended. If this is not an option, leave the items in the trunk and out of view.
Take care, and be safe.
