National Vehicle Theft Prevention Month

The months of July and August are the most popular months for auto theft. Because so many cars are stolen during this two month period, July has become the National Vehicle Theft Prevention Month. So, make sure that you know how you are going to keep your vehicles safe throughout the next two months.  Here are some tips that may help you as you are looking to find news ways to keep your cars safe…

 

  1. Be smart! When you walk away from your car, make sure that you do not leave your keys in your car. Some people think that if they leave their keys in their car for just a few minutes, they will be fine. The truth is, keys should never be left in the car. When you leave your car your doors should be locked and your windows should be rolled up. Make sure that you do not leave your wallet or other valuables in your car.
  2. Use the theft prevention products that are available to you. Make sure that you have a wheel lock or an alarm system in place, so that there is an audible response if someone is to try to steal your car. There are professional thieves that can get past these devices, but they can act as a deterrent.
  3. Use a tracking and recovery system. This way, as soon as your vehicle goes missing you can notify the police of the location of the car and, hopefully, get your car back.
