How to prevent break-ins

smash and grab

Unfortunately, it might actually be impossible to make your car unable to be broken into by any means.  However, there is a short list of practices that may make thieves at least move on to a different target:

Keep your car clean – A messy car just might give a thief the assumption that there might be some treasure buried under all that junk.  Don’t give a thief that assumption.

Disconnect the battery – If you’re going to be away from your car for a week or more, consider disconnecting your battery before you leave.  If a thief is able to break into your car, chances are they’ll be too frazzled to try and figure out why it won’t start and will quickly retreat.

Don’t leave valuables in your car – This includes CDs, GPS, laptops, radios, and even loose change.

Lock your doors – It doesn’t matter if you’ll be away from your car for 12 hours or for 10 seconds, locking your doors dramatically decreases the chance your car will be broken into.
