Auto safety during the holidays

I know this sounds crazy! Believe it or not more vehicles get stolen and/or broken into during the holidays than any other time of the year! There are a few things you can do to “deter” said intruders.

1. Keep anything “enticing” out of sight. This means electronics, packages, bags that might be misconstrued as packages, even electronics cords. Another hot item is Cd’s or DVD’s and GPS units. These are easy to steal and move in the market without being detected.

2. Do put your alarm on. I know they can be annoying. However, even the little blinking light can deter the wishful.

3. Park in well-lit areas whenever possible. This keeps many at bay, due to the possibility of being seen.

4. Don’t talk in the parking lot about where you live or where you are going, ie. to eat or shopping. This gives a time frame and opportunity.

Overall these are basic ideas but they can save your vehicle and you from damage and theft. Automotive safety during the holidays is easy by just following a few steps.
