Motorists are reminded of the following crime prevention advice:

  • Most thefts from vehicles are opportunist so lock all doors when the vehicle is unattended.
  • Do not leave anything on display in your vehicle, thieves can sometimes mistake them for valuables and the damage they can do to the car to get in can be costly.
  • Take all your belongings with you when you leave the vehicle. If you cannot, then lock them in the boot out of sight.
