Individuals who take the time to lock their vehicles are less likely to be the victim of auto-related crimes.
Approximately 60% of all thefts from vehicles are preventable.
Thieves overwhelmingly steal vehicles that are not locked -- even if they’re in a homeowner’s private driveway or even inside a garage that’s left open.
Some vehicles have side-view mirrors that fold in when they’re locked and the key is not in the vehicle. Thieves may be able to tell from a distance whether or not your vehicle is a good target.
Items "hidden" under seats (such as a purse or computer) may still be visible and attract a thief.
Thieves aren’t looking for something in particular -- they’re looking for everything.
Once a thief manages to steal anything containing your personal information, including a social security number, you are in danger of also becoming a victim of identity theft.
