Preventing Vehicle Burglary
It can take seconds for a thief to steal something from your car, so never leave valuables inside, even if your car is locked. Most vehicle crime is preventable.
Don’t make your car a target for thieves by leaving such sought-after items such as purses, wallets, laptop 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.
