You’ve locked the doors at home and turned on the alarm as you take off for a summer day trip or vacation. Next step is to put in place a few safety protocols to keep your car and your belongings you’re traveling with safe by avoiding break-ins:
- remove expensive items from your car and carry them with you;
- if you need to stow items in the trunk or other hidden area make sure you do so well before you reach your destination – never do so in the parking garage or lot in full view of any potential thieves;
- and, park in well-lit areas, near pedestrian traffic.
