Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Protecting Your Car

Don’t leave presents in full view on the back seat when out shopping. These can be tempting to thieves.

Always lock your car and make sure windows are closed, even if you’re away from your vehicle for just a few minutes.

Never leave your keys in the ignition whilst your vehicle is unattended, even for a few minutes.

Thieves will often steal cars that have been left with the ignition running to defrost the windows.

Don’t leave valuables in the glove compartment. Take bank cards, mobile phones and satellite navigation systems with you. These items are on a car thieves’ shopping list.

If you’re parking in the city or town centre, park with care in particularly at night. Park in busy well-lit areas and avoid parking in quiet side roads.
