GTA is a pretty common phenomena and it is up to us to make sure that our vehicles are safe. It is not just the new cars that get stolen. In fact, the old cars may be more vulnerable because the owners tend to get careless about them. To prevent the auto theft, here are some tips you can follow.

Always lock your car. No matter for how short a time you are leaving it, lock your car properly. A lot of car thefts happen when the owners forget to lock the car doors. Buy a sturdy door-lock mechanism featuring an alarm system. It should set off a loud alarm at a break-in attempt.

Do not leave the expensive items in the car when you are leaving it. If you have left a laptop or any other expensive item inside the car, it will tempt the thieves more.

A lot of people are not really particular about their parking habits. Where and how you are parking the car can be the difference between safety and theft. Do not park your car in a place where there is no public movement at all. Park your car in the place which is more inhabited. Also, if you are parking the car in the night or leaving it at the parking overnight, make sure that the area is well-lit and clearly visible.

When you are leaving your car even for a minute to let’s say pickup a burger from the joint, do not leave the engine running. This will make the theft so much easier.
