Keep your car and contents safe – Lock it or lose it?
Do you ever have that nagging feeling that you have forgotten to lock your car? If you have any doubt – go back and check.
In the summer months we see an increase in the East Riding of vehicles being left unlocked. Leaving your car unlocked is an opportunity for an opportunist thief to go along a row of parked cars and try each door. Sooner or later one might be left unlocked and they will have open access to whatever is left inside.
We are reminding people not only to lock their cars but to never keep anything on show in their cars. We have lots more vehicle security advice on our website.
