Keep your vehicle safe

Cars are stolen for a number of reasons. Stolen vehicles may be shipped overseas, where they are either sold to consumers who don't know they are buying a stolen car; chopped for parts; or used to commit another crime.

"It takes less than a minute for a car thief to steal your vehicle.  If you've gone to the trouble of buying a car that has a theft deterrent system, don't make it easy for thieves by leaving the keys in the car," added Donaldson. Protect your vehicle by following these tips:

  • Never leave your vehicle running when unattended.
  • Park in well-lit areas.
  • When parking your car, always close the windows and lock the doors.
  • Put valuables and packages in the trunk, where they are out of sight.
  • Keep your car in the garage at night.
  • Don't leave personal information in the glove box. Take your insurance and ownership documents with you when you park your vehicle.
