  • Secure bonnet locks and lockable petrol caps should be fitted and used whenever possible.
  • Never leave your baggage unattended outside the vehicle.
  • Never carry other people’s baggage or packages unless you have personally checked the contents.
  • Carry a torch with you to check your vehicle after dark. Do not leave the torch in the vehicle
  • Switch off the courtesy light inside the vehicle to avoid illumination when getting in and out
  • Always try to park the vehicle in a lockable garage at home and at work. If no garage is available, leave it in a supervised car park or where the general public can see it
