Vehicle security

Don't leave anything on display

Most vehicle crime is opportunistic. If thieves think there is something valuable in your car, they will break in. Even something like an old coat or carrier bag can tempt a thief – they won’t know that the coat is old or there is nothing in the pockets or the carrier bag.

Wherever possible, take everything out of the vehicle when you park it. Leave the glove compartment door open so that thieves can see that there is nothing in there.

Try to remove everything from the boot too – thieves are increasingly targeting car boots to see if there is anything worth stealing.
