Lock It or Lose It, a vehicle safety reminder from Bayside Police
Recently you may have seen a few of these Lock it or Lose it flyers popping up, especially in carparks.
These flyers are mainly used for education purposes and to remind you of vehicle security.
The less opportunities you give thieves and opportunistic offenders to target your vehicle, the better.
Don’t forget to secure your vehicle whilst unattended and remember not to leave anything valuable visible (lock it in the boot, out of sight).
Even tradies can increase their vehicle security by locking cabinets on vehicle trays and considering engraving tools. This can make it easy to locate true owners in the event that they are stolen.
If you can afford a dash camera that runs when your vehicle is parked, then you will have the next level up in security. It can record who comes near your vehicle and can save you against carpark hit and runs. It’s also a good investment in case of road rage incidents or accidents.
To find out more about vehicle security, feel free to review the above flyer or the below post.
