• If you have a garage, use it and lock the door as well as your vehicle
• Never leave your car keys in plain view or in an easily accessible area
• Keep your vehicle registration certificate and proof of insurance on you at all times, don’t leave these documents in your glove compartment
• Always park your vehicle in a well-lit area
