SIMPLE STEPS TO PROTECT YOUR CAR AND VALUABLES
Car owners are urged to take precautions to ensure the safety of their cars and property inside them. When you park and leave your car, it is a good idea to do a quick checklist. Ensure the surrounding area is well lit at night, personal valuables are stored out of sight or taken from the vehicle and doors and windows are locked. Don’t leave valuables in your car, especially those parked in driveways, open carports and on the roadway overnight. Thieves usually steal items such as MP3 players, mobile phones, cash, laptops, GPS, CDs and CD players. People should take these items with them when possible.
