Secure your vehicle

Taking some simple steps, can help to protect your vehicle from thieves.

Remember that your vehicle is like a shop window for thieves: if you can see any of your property left in the vehicle, you are inviting the opportunist thief to steal them. These items may include:

  • briefcases and handbags
  • cameras
  • CDs
  • mobile phones
  • sports bags and equipment
  • satellite navigation system
  • wallets, cheque books, credit cards and any loose change

If you have to leave items in your car, put them out of sight (eg the boot) at the start of your journey as thieves may be watching you park your vehicle. Always close and lock all doors, sunroofs and windows and activate any security devices when leaving your car unattended, even for a short time.
