Some vehicle theft preventions practices to keep in mind:
- Lock all car doors
- Roll up all windows
- Remove your personal belongings
- Park in a well-lit area
- Park in highly visible locations
- Use anti-theft devices (club, alarm, kill-switch, etc.)
- Don't leave cars running and unattended
- Never leave keys in the ignition
- When parking on the street, find a well-lit area with lots of pedestrian foot traffic (thieves look for isolated, dark areas to break into cars).
- Do not invite a break-in by leaving valuables such as cameras, CDs, money, computers, or packages in plain sight; either take them with you or discreetly lock them in the trunk.
- If you do not have a trunk, place them in an out-of-sight location such as under a seat or grocery cover (it's best to do this before you get to your parking spot).
