Best Tips to Prevent Vehicle Theft
More than 880,000 vehicles were stolen in the U.S. in 2020. It is a 10.9% increase compared to figures reported the previous year. With vehicle theft on the rise, you must make your car a less appealing target.
Here are some of the best tips to fend off car thieves:
Install an audible alarm system
The NHTSA recommends installing an audible alarm system.
It emits a loud noise that can chase off a potential thief.
Park in well-lit areas
Park your car protectively by choosing well-lit areas that might deter a thief. It is also a good idea to park near CCTV cameras and other security devices.
Secure your car keys
Never leave a spare key near your vehicle. Always take your keys with you. Storing a spare key inside the car makes it easier for thieves to steal your car.
Lock doors and close windows
Make it a habit to check your car doors if they are locked and close your windows completely.
Don’t leave valuables
Never leave valuables inside your car. Any valuables that are visibly left in your car attract thieves. If leaving something valuable can’t be helped, make sure to keep it out of sight.
