TIP #1 Don’t leave valuables in the car
Remove all valuables from your vehicle, even the trunk (in case someone gets access to your car and opens the trunk). It is specially recommended to remove valuables from the passenger’s and driver’s seat. Look inside the car when you are locking your doors to make sure you didn’t leave your wallet, phone or electronics behind.
TIP #2 Choose Your Parking Wisely
Park in a well-lit area with good foot traffic where lots of eyes will be around. Intruders usually target areas that are dark and where not a lot of witnesses will be found. It would even be ideal to park in a location with cameras.
Tip #3 Keep Your Car Tidy
Avoid making intruders guess if there are valuables under the clutter- keep it clean! It will also allow you to keep track of what exactly is in your car.
Tip #4 Lock Your Doors
