Tips on preventing car crime

It is an obvious statement that nobody wants their car to be broken into or have items stolen from their car. Yet despite this some drivers take little care in discouraging theft.

There are various types of crime and various types of theft. There are those planned crimes that you are unlikely to be able to stop, where your car is specifically targetted.

However a lot of car crime is called opportunity crime, whereby someone spots the chance or opportunity to steal something and therefore decides on the spur of the moment to commit a crime.

A classic example of this is someone popping out of their car and leaving their mobile phone and wallet in clear view on the seat or by the windscreen of the car. When people walk past and see these there is a clear opportunity crime there whereby someone is tempted to on impulse break in and steal those items.

Other obvious things to avoid are to forget to lock your car. Some drivers get into bad habits and when they just pop out they don't lock their car. Remember that an accomplished thief only needs a matter of seconds to perform a crime, so no matter how long you leave your car for always lock it and take your keys with you. Perform a mental check everytime you leave your car that you've done both those things, and then it will become second nature. Much better to do that each time you leave the car than not to do it and have something stolen from your vehicle, or of course even worse the vehicle itself if you make the classic mistake of leaving the cars inside the car and it not being locked!
