Prevent your car from being targeted by thefts

19/07/2016 English


Even a careful person will forget to bring his key and not able to go back home one day. Every people will be absent-minded sometimes, so as drivers. Parking your car in an secured car park or simply locking the doors will deter those who might just be waiting around for an easy target. However, we should take precautions to prevent our cars from being targeted anytime and anywhere!

Don’t leave valuable personal property in your car

The best way to attract a thief is to leave your purse or other valuable items in a highly visible area of your car. If you must put something of value in your car, keep them in the trunk or under the seats, where it is not visible to others.

Completely close windows and sunroofs

It’s not just because thieves might reach in through the gap and open your locks with tools. Open windows will disable the pressure sensor in some car alarms, leaving the vehicle more vulnerable to break-in and potentially giving thieves more time before the alarm sounds.

Get an alarm

If you don’t have an alarm system, get one. The noise alone may be enough to scare away an inexperienced thief and prevent the break-in.

Park for visibility

Park in a busy, well-lit area, and avoid concealment from larger vehicles or fences. The greater the chances are that someone might see a crime in progress, the lower the chances are that the potential thief will attempt it.
