SAFETY TIPS – Keeping your vehicle safe.
1. Lock Up
Always lock your doors when driving and keep valuables out of sight. If your window must be open, make sure it isn’t wide enough for a hand to fit through. Also make sure that all your windows are open the same distance. This will prevent your window from being smashed.
2. Space Out
Make sure there is enough space between your car and the car in front of you at a traffic light or stop street. You need to be able to see the rear tyres of the car in front of you to have enough space to drive off if necessary.
3. Be Vigilant
Be aware of loiterers or anyone approaching your car at a traffic light, stop street or in your driveway. If you feel unsafe, drive away. Don’t loiter in the carpark when you have finished your shopping or when you arrive in the carpark. Criminals are alert, you must be more alert than them.
4. Park Safe
Always park your vehicle in a secure spot – parking garages or areas with a closed-circuit camera (CCTV) – and never leave any valuables in the car.
5. Avoid the jam
Car jamming is a real thing. Make sure your car is locked when you have parked it by testing your doors. Car thieves can jam your alarm system and disappear with your car within minutes.
6. Track your car
Yes, it’s not a guarantee, but a car tracking unit greatly improves your chances of recovering your vehicle, if it does get stolen.
