Vehicle break-ins, stolen cars, carjacking can happen all the time. There are many things you can do to prevent these things from happening to you.
Vehicle Break-ins/Stolen cars
Lock your cars
The majority of all theft from auto cases is the result of not locking your car doors. Thieves look for easy opportunities. If you can, park your vehicle in your garage and make sure your garage is locked.
Remove all valuables from inside your vehicle
Do not leave keys, pursues, wallets, laptops, smart phones, tablets, GPS units, etc. in your vehicle or in sight. Take all valuables inside with you or lock them in your trunk.
Do not leave your vehicle unlocked, running and unattended while you are starting it up in the early morning hours before you leave for work, while you make a quick stop at a gas station or convenience store. This makes it very easy for thieves to steal your vehicle in a matter of seconds.
Crash and steals
Be cautious when you get into a motor vehicle crash. Some thieves purposely crash into your vehicle and wait for you to get out of the car to exchange information and assess the damage and someone else steals your car.
