The overall number of car thefts has greatly decreased over the last 15 years, but the numbers also show a significant increase in some types of car theft – in particular, when people leave their cars running.
Letting your car warm up in the driveway on a cold day or leaving your car running to dash into the store for a quick purchase – these are the types of situations that have led to a sharp increase in car thefts. You may think, “It’s only for a minute or two”, but that’s all it takes.
Don’t take a chance. Always take your keys and key fob with you. It will keep your car safe and help keep your insurance costs from increasing.
