Stolen cars, vans, trucks and motorcycles cost victims time and money—and increase everyone’s insurance premiums. They’re also often used to commit other crimes. Don’t become a victim of this serious crime.
- Never leave your car running or the keys in the ignition when you’re away from it, even for just a minute.
- Always roll up the windows and lock the car, even if it’s in front of your home.
- Never leave valuables in plain view, even if your car is locked. Put them in the trunk or at least out of sight. Purses, packages, electronics, etc. should be left at home if they are not needed.
- Always park your car in a well-lit area or where it will be in plain view of others. If the criminal feels someone will witness his crime, he will likely go elsewhere.
