CRIMES OF OPPORTUNITY ON THE RISE
Never leave anything out in plain sight inside your car.
Thieves often take advantage of opportunities such as unlocked car doors. Don’t create an opportunity by leaving your car doors unlocked or by leaving items in view. Yes, even if the doors are locked thieves can break through the windows to take your belongings if they feel motivated enough. So, don't give anyone any reason for them to target your car. Even if it's something as simple as a blanket - by leaving this out in the open, thieves may think that the blanket exists in there to hide something valuable beneath it. By keeping your car completely clear of your possessions, it will not only save you the trouble of recovering your valuables and the inconvenience of having to ﬁx broken car windows.
