Lock It or Lose It
Did you know that a professional can steal your vehicle in just under 30 seconds?
A vehicle left unlocked is an easy target. Protect your vehicle from theft by:
- Always locking your doors of your vehicle when you leave it. Thieves may steal an unlocked vehicle or rummage through it looking for valuables and personal information.
- parking in well-lit areas
- keeping all valuables out of sight
- Never leave the keys in the ignition or leave your vehicle running unless you are in it. Thieves could not only steal your vehicle, they could also take any personal information and steal your identity.
- Never leave briefcases, purses, or duffel bags in plain view inside your vehicle. Even if they are not valuable, thieves won’t know that.
