Your car doesn’t have to be on the Hot Wheels list to be a target for theft. Do what you can to deter would-be thieves.
- This might seem like common sense, but lock your vehicle and close all windows every time you leave it. Even in your own driveway!
- Do not leave valuables visible to anyone who walks by the car. Visible items may attract a window smash and grab.
- If you are parking your vehicle overnight, choose to park in a well-lit, busy or familiar area.
- Report any theft to the police. If items have been stolen from your car, do not disturb the scene. Police may want to dust for fingerprints.
