CHP OFFER TIPS TO AVOID CAR THEFT

Vehicle theft is still a major problem for the California Highway Patrol. Reporter Cara Conway offers these suggestions from the CHP to protect your car or truck from theft…
The CHP reported that 2013 vehicle thefts have declined by 2 percent in the state of California; however, 171,000 thefts were still documented statewide. Remember that locking a vehicle alone is not the only preventative measure you can take to keep your vehicle and belongings safe. The CHP suggests the following tips to reduce the risk of vehicle theft. Before leaving a vehicle, be sure to park in a highly visible and secure location such as under street lights in public parking lots. Using an alarm system and never leaving the car running unattended are also preventative deterrents to keep auto thieves away. While vehicle theft is a crime of opportunity, being alert and applying these simple precautions could prevent you from becoming a victim.
