    Tips from a Car Locksmith: Protecting Yourself from Car

    Theft

    The last thing you want is to walk out

    of work at the end of your shift or

    your house in the morning only to find

    that your vehicle is gone. Not only is

    this entirely frustrating, but it is quite

    frightening as well. Your mind starts

    going a million miles a minute trying

    to figure out what went wrong and

    how you could have prevented your

    car from being stolen. Here are a few tips to prevent your vehicle from being

    snatched out from under you when you least expect it.

    Avoid putting spare keys close to your car. Unfortunately, many people

    opt to put a spare underneath their vehicle just in case they do get locked

    out. Thieves are going to look here first, so having your key there is a

    welcome invitation to a would-be thief. Its far better to call upon a

    locksmith than it is to have your vehicle stolen out from under you.

    Avoid leaving windows down. Regardless of whether it is the middle of

    summer and a blazing 100 degrees outside or not, you should never leave

    the windows down when you arent inside of the vehicle.

    Always have the car off. If you arent inside of the vehicle and waiting for

    someone else to come out, your vehicle shouldnt be left running. Anytime

    the vehicle is started, someone needs to be inside or standing close by to

    make sure it is safe and secure.

    Never leave the doors unlocked. Thieves are always going to check your

    door handles. If the doors are unlocked, they are going to hop inside and

    start working their magic with the wires. Lock your vehicle at all times,

    regardless of how safe you think the area might be.

    Never park in a dark area. Always part someone where there is a lot of

    light. A dimly lit area is a welcome target for a thief. They are able to hide

    out of sight and break into any number of cars without being detected.

    When your vehicle is underneath of a light, they arent going to chance it for

    the fear of getting caught.

    In following the tips above, you can make sure your vehicle is right where it

    is supposed to be when you need it. It doesnt take a lot of time and effort

    to make sure your vehicle is protected.
