You can prevent your car from being stolen with the following tips:
– Always lock your car no matter how close by your destination is. It is always safer to lock your car once you are not in it.
– Find ways to make your car look more secure. Security stickers usually deter most car thieves for fear of the car being tracked or an alarm going off
– Ensure you keep all your valuables away from view. Bags, phones, watches, laptops and wallets must always be kept hidden in the trunk or the glove box. Do not leave behind any source of temptation for thieves
– Make sure you park your car in safe, well-lit places where there are people around. If you notice the building near you has a CCTV camera, park close to it. Thieves do not want to be caught on camera breaking into a car.
