• Keep your car in good running condition. Make sure there’s enough gas
  to get where you’re going and back.

• Have your keys ready before getting into your vehicle. Lock the doors
  immediately upon entering your vehicle.
• Always roll up the windows and lock car doors, even if you’re coming
  right back. Check inside and out before getting inside.
• Avoid parking in isolated areas. Be especially alert in parking lots and   underground parking garages. Park in well lit areas.
• If you think someone is following you home. Drive to the nearest police
  or fire station, gas station, or other open business to get help.
• If your vehicle breaks down, call for help on the cell phone, lock all
  windows and doors on the vehicle and don’t open the vehicle for anyone
  until help arrives.
• Never leave your credit cards or other important papers in the glove   department. Never leave any objects in plain view. Lock all valuables
  in the trunk.
• Do not mark your key chain with your name, address, and license
  number. Lost keys can lead a thief to your car or home.

• Do not leave your house and car keys together with an attendant at a public
  parking lot. Your house key can be quickly duplicated and your address
  obtained from your plate number.
• Use the “Club” or other auto theft prevention tools.
• Never pick up hitchhikers.
