Turn back to safety ba­sics

Eyethu Baywatch - - MOTORING • EZEZIMOTO -

ALL cars to­day fea­ture a steer­ing col­umn lock.

This fea­ture was in­tro­duced si­mul­ta­ne­ously by Gen­eral Mo­tors and Ford in the late 1960s.

To­day, with track­ing de­vices, alarms and im­mo­bilis­ers be­ing com­mon, we of­ten for­get about this fea­ture, which is still just as handy as what it was 50 years ago.

Use your steer­ing col­umn lock when­ever you park your car, even in your own garage overnight.

The more dif­fi­cult you make it for thieves to drive away in your car, the bet­ter.
