Don't let thieves get an easy ride. Follow these simple rules to protect your vehicle from thieves.

1. Lock your vehicle

2. Keep the keys safe

Thieves only need to be within a few metres of your car key to capture the signal, even if it’s inside your home. This means that even if your car and home are secure, thieves can still unlock, start and steal your car.

How to protect your keyless entry car

  • When at home keep your car key (and the spare) well away from the car.
  • Put the keys in a screened or signal-blocking pouch, such as a Faraday Bag.
  • Reprogramme your keys if you buy a second-hand car.
  • Turn off wireless signals on your fob when it's not being used.
  • 3. Be aware of carjackers

    4. Park responsibly

    5. Watch for illegal tow trucks

    6. Fit good in-car security locks

    7. Double-check electronic locking
