Likewise, you can reduce the risk of vehicle theft by parking behind locked gates or in a locked garage, if possible, as parking on the street greatly increases the risk of theft.

And when your vehicle is unattended, see to it that doors are locked, windows are closed, and valuables are kept out of sight if ever you must leave them in your vehicle.
