Tips For Preventing Car or Vehicle Theft

As an Ontario driver you can't guarantee that your car or other vehicle will not be stolen – but you can take a few easy steps to prevent the likelihood of it happening. Here are some tips for making it more difficult for a thief to steal your car or truck and its contents:

  • Always lock your vehicle and never leave the keys behind.
  • Turn off your ignition whenever you leave your car.
  • Avoid parking on the street wherever possible.
  • Conceal or remove important items left in your car.
  • Never leave money, phones or music players out in the open.
  • Whenever possible, park your vehicle in a well-lit, well-guarded, highly visible area.
  • Ask your neighbours to watch out for your vehicle and do the same for them.
  • Install a theft deterrent such as a car alarm or an ignition disabler.
