Keeping Your Car Safe: How to Prevent Auto Theft

No one wants to become the victim of auto theft, but the truth is that at least 770,000 people have their cars stolen annually. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration tells us that around half of these thefts are due to driver error. In other words, many vehicle thefts can be prevented. Here at Volvo Cars Palm Springs, we want to offer you these smart tips for keeping your car safe:

  • Always keep your car doors locked, whether your car is parked or you are driving.
  • Remove your keys from the ignition when you get out of your car, and take them with you.
  • Know your surroundings, and try to avoid areas that are not well-lit or are known for criminal activity.
  • Never leave items like cell phones, tablets, laptops, cash, purses, wallets, jewelry, or anything else valuable in your car where thieves can see them.
