CAR THEFT ALERT
1. Keys in the ignition!
Reminder: Never, never, never leave your
keys in the car even for a second, even while running a quick errand
at the groceries stores, at the ATM, or to pay your gas at the gas
station or to pick up your kids across the road.
2. Vehicles stolen were left unlocked
. Reminder: Always
car! Make sure all favourite means of entry are shut tight.
3. Vehicle towed away
. Tip: Park with your wheels turned towards
or turned to the side in driveway and parking lots. This
makes it difficult
for thieves to tow your car away.
4. Did not activate the Security Alarm

horn or lights will frighten the thief away.
5. Did not have any anti-theft device

This is a cheap preventive measure! By marking your vehicle,
you assist the police to identify your car later.

. Reminder: When driving your car, always
keep your doors locked and windows rolled up. Stay alert!
8. Car stolen from a remote and quiet road or parking lots
in well-lit areas with good pedestrian traffic.
