Prevent car theft

Most cars are taken by amateurs who can be stopped fairly easily. Protect your car against this type of crime by taking the following sensible precautions:

Lock up

* An unlocked car is an open invitation to a car thief. Lock up whenever you leave your car, and take the keys with you.

* Lock the trunk or tailgate.

* Close all windows - professional thieves have tools that unlock cars through the
smallest openings.

* When you park the car, remove cellular phones, stereo faceplates and other valuable possessions. Do not leave gift-wrapped packages or cameras lying on the seat. Lock all valuables in your trunk or take them with you.

* Lock your car even if you are making a quick stop at the gas station, convenience store or mini-mall.
