Stealing Trucks Information
There are some common sense precautions you can use to minimize the risk of your vehicle being stolen or broken into:
- Never leave the keys in the ignition, and never leave the engine running while you run into a store or drop something off.
- Always lock your car, even when running short errands to the grocery store or leaving your car in your own driveway. A car thief will walk right up to an unlocked car in broad daylight, hop in and be gone in 30 seconds.
- Never leave valuables (purses, briefcases, radar detectors, money, portable electronic devices, leather coats, etc.) in plain view. They encourage thieves to break in and help themselves.
- Avoid parking where you have to leave your keys with a valet or parking attendant. It's a simple matter to make a duplicate key and steal your car later. Use self-park facilities where possible.
- Park in well-lighted areas, preferably where there are people and/or traffic nearby. This discourages casual thieves from breaking and entering.
- If you're installing an expensive stereo system in your vehicle, think hard about getting a "pull-out" unit that can be removed for safe-keeping if you have to park the vehicle outside.
- Install an after market alarm system on your vehicle. There are many different types from which to choose. A loud, annoying alarm may draw attention, and deter a theft.
- Install a locking device (club or bar) on the steering wheel. These are inexpensive and discourage thieves by making it difficult to steer the vehicle.
