The best thing you can do to protect your vehicle is to make it difficult for someone to get inside. One of the ways you can do this is by keeping your doors locked. The person would have to make too much of a scene trying to get into your vehicle.

  1. Do not leave your vehicle running

Even if you are going to be away from your vehicle for thirty seconds, do not leave your vehicle running. It is far too easy for someone to get into your vehicle and take something, or worse, drive away.
