Prevent Burglaries from Vehicles
It can take seconds for a thief to steal something from your car, so never leave valuables inside. Most vehicle crime is preventable.
Don’t make your car a target for thieves by leaving sought after items such as purses, wallets, lap top computers and cell phones in plain view. Always check you have closed all your windows and locked the doors before leaving your car unattended.
While there’s no surefire way to totally prevent your car from being broken into, keeping these tips in mind can make your car less of a target.
