And this sends an invite to the thief that you are a careless person and he can easily make some cool cash out of your metal. Thieves need no time to snatch your car in this position and flee away the spot. Or otherwise, if he will not flee that particular time, then he would look for you next time, if he knows you particularly, that when you would make some more hefty pitches for him to get a chance to sponge on the cake very easily. So avoid this if you had, and take along your car keys with you, after switching off the ignition, the next time when you would step out of the car that maybe even for short while also.

If the thieve manages to get those important documents with your car, then his job would become so easy, that in case you find yourself in the false situation whenever you go to drag him in the legal battle. It’s better to carry those papers with you, rather than leaving those behind you in the car cabin.

Seal your car to the fullest:

Before going out of the cabin, ensure that all the doors are closed and the boot is also properly locked. Well, this is not an issue for the sedan owners, but it falls heavy to the people who owns vehicle like SUVs and hatchbacks. It is because they had the five doors to see into it. And out of it, four of them are easily accessible, but the rear is quite difficult to ensure every now and then. Thanks to the door indications available on most of the vehicles today, but still there are many in markets which are not being bestowed with the same. In addition, do also look that all the windows are rolled up properly. Nowadays, most of the thefts that are taking placed in India are due to the creepy loophole left behind after the rolled-up window. And the thief utilizes this opportunity to unlock your door dropping inside a very fine string or the similar type metal.

Park the car in well lighted parking spot:

Parking the car in sleazy type of environment is not advisable at all. Do look for the spot that are well lighted and cool enough to be friendly with your car. However, we know there are some stances when the person had to leave the vehicle in such drastic areas for some reasons, but we assure if this is your daily routine then change it and select a proper one even though if it is a bit far from your desired destination. Better to be this distance safe rather than getting annoyed after the fall of uncertainty. One more addition we would like to do with this point is, in the dark there is a possibility that, in spite of the car being not stolen then some miscreants may damage your car for some of their foolish reason. Or even in India this type of case is also seen the cars remains intact and all the tyres are being stolen from it which is quite enough for the thieves to bank upon easily and make a cool party out of it.

Never leave the valuables behind:

Yes, here we do mean every valuable, not only jewels and such but instead your laptop and mobile phones too. There is a two possibility for it to cause an uncertainty in this scenario. One, the thieve may want to get your valuables from inside which is peeping through the window, and to own it those, he may then open the car. And in the case if he succeeds doing this then what is the surety that he may not steal your car too. And in other worst case, if your car is stolen those other important information that is stored in your phone and notebook may also get carried to the outer world. In the era of advancements, car thieves are no lesser dumb, they know what values for how much and who can pay the exact price.

Don’t lend your key fob in the suspicious hands:

Actually we should have mentioned this point in the beginning only, lest it says, if in your know-bouts there is a person whom you doubt a lot, then don’t lend your key fob to him/her even in any of the emergency case as well. It sounds weird for many of us, but really if you want to help that person during some critical situation then the drive yourself and get him sorted out, or send the chauffeur/trustworthy escort with him to ease his streaking issues. Don’t take a slight chance to lend the key fob in such suspicious hands. And apart from this, we also suggest, do keep the fob in your pocket only, don’t let them out in the open air ground much, and specifically when you are sitting with some other personnel and known persons.

Call the police if found suspicious activity around the car:

Yes, if one found any of the suspicious activity had been happened around his car or maybe with the car itself, without wasting any moment he should call the police for help at immediate point.
