Leaving Your Vehicle Unattended

Coming back to your parked car to find that it has been broken into can be a horrifying discovery. To avoid it from happening, you’ll do wise to ensure you park safely and securely to keep thieves at bay.

Popping back into the house to get something is a perfect scenario for opportunists who may be in the area. Always lock your car and never leave the keys in the ignition, even if you are only leaving it for a couple of seconds.

Leaving your windows open invites thieves to reach in for items through the gap by hand or with a tool, which could also be used to unlock the door for them to get in. If you’re parking at night, be sure to leave your car in a well-lit area and preferably as close to a populated area as possible. Leaving it in the dark in the middle of nowhere is simply asking for trouble!

Always think before leaving your vehicle, no matter how long for. Thieves are clever – don’t present them with any opportunity to rob you and/or cause damage!

Safe driving from Britannia!
