Car Crime Prevention Tips
More than a quarter of all recorded crimes are car thefts, or thefts from cars - like stereos and mobile phones. If your care it could mean weeks of expensive inconvenience - and losing your no claims bonus, which would result in an expensive insurance premium the following year.

Don't be wise after the event -

take the following tips to turn the tide against car crime!!!
  • Never leave a car door unlocked or a window or sun-roof open even when just going into a shop for a moment or two
  • Don't leave any belongings in your car. A thief won't know that a bag or coat doesn't contain something valuable and might break a window to get at it. If you can't take them with you, never leave things on display - lock them in the boot
  • Make a note of your stereo serial number and keep it in a safe place. If it's removable, always take it with you
  • Don't leave credit cards or cheque books in the glove compartment. 1 in 5 stolen cheque and credit cards are taken from cars
  • Never leave vehicle documents in the car - they could help a thief to sell it
  • Remoe the ignition key and engage the steering lock - even when parking in your own driveway or garage - and don't forget to lock the garage door
  • Have an alarm system or immobiliser fitted or use a steering wheel lock
  • Always try to park in a well-lit, open location
  • Double check that all car doors, windows, sunroof and boot are locked before leaving it. And put your aerial down to stop it being vandalised
