Many people worry about someone breaking into their home or business, but they forget about the safety of their cars.

Not only can your car be stolen, but someone can also break into your car and steal valuable items you have left in there. In order to avoid this from happening, be sure to remove pricey items from your car when you’re not in it. This includes phones, laptops, tablets, and wallets, to name a few. These are easy for a thief to grab and carry with them. If you can’t take them with you for whatever reason, keep them out of sight by hiding them under a seat or locking them in your trunk.

As far as your car itself being stolen, you want to follow some safety guidelines to prevent this from happening. One of the most important steps to keeping your car safe is to always lock it. If you leave your car unlocked, a thief can easily ride away with it or take any valuables you have left behind. Another important safety step is to keep your keys with you. Even if your car is locked, if you leave your keys in plain view, a thief can take your keys and locate you car, without even having to break into it.

Where you park is also key to keeping your car safe. You want to park in a well-lit area that is easy visible. If it’s possible, it’s best to park near the entrance of a building and/or in the sight of a security camera.
