3: ALWAYS park your car in a well lighted area - preferably where people are constantly
walking past. Thieves LOVE quiet, dark corners where they can break in at their leisure.
4: DON'T leave your keys hanging up in your hallway/porch etc. It is common nowadays
for thieves to break into your home just to get your car keys to steal your car the
5: "Car-jacking" is becoming increasingly common. Modern vehicle security is now
a victim of it's own success. Just about all cars from 'N' reg. on, are fitted with
built in CAT 2 immobilisers. Thieves know it is almost impossible to drive the vehicle
away without the keys, so instead, make the driver a target. ALWAYS drive with the
doors locked, DO NOT get out of your vehicle if bumped from behind in a lonely area
- keep the doors locked and drive to a police station. for more specific advice on
carjacking, click here.
6: If threatened, don't try to be a hero - just hand over your keys. Your life is
much more valuable than your car
7: Fit an anti-hijack device. If you're door is opened whilst the engine is running
(as in a hi-jack situation) a timer is started. The thief then drives away removing
the physical threat from you, after a few seconds the engine cuts out, the car comes
to a stop and the siren/horn sounds. The car is now of no use to the thief and so
he runs away enabling you summon help and retrieve your car. An anti-hijack device
can be fitted as a stand-alone device regardless if the car has an alarm system already.
1: Fit a security device ... well, we would say that, wouldn't we? - but nevertheless
it's true. Most car criminals are opportunist and will always look for an unprotected
car. Beware of cheap car alarms - there is an old saying that "you get what you pay
for". This is very true with vehicle security. Criminals can get around a cheap alarm
in minutes. A well-fitted Autowatch system will leave them baffled.
2: NEVER leave valuables where they can be seen from the outside - thieves have been
known to break into a car for the odd coins in a coin tray - maybe enough for a packet
of cigarettes to them, but a whole lot of headaches for you.
