File Under D for Duh – Leave Keys in Your Car, It’s Likely to Get Stolen
A new report from National Insurance Crime Bureau has found a new trend in car thefts. While overall thefts are declining there has been a rise in the number of thefts of cars with the keys left in them.
Between 2012 and 2014 nearly 127,000 vehicles were reported stolen with the keys left in the vehicle.
“Stealing a vehicle is very difficult with today’s anti-theft technology and leaving the keys in the vehicle is an open invitation for the opportunistic car thief,” said NICB President and CEO Joe Wehrle.
So don't leave your keys in your car, or leave it running while you go inside somewhere.
