HALIFAX, Dec. 10 /CNW/ - With the Holiday Season upon us the Insurance
Brokers Association of Nova Scotia (IBANS) would like to remind all
motorists to lock their vehicles at all times.
Tis the Season to be jolly, but it's also the time of year when car
break-ins are on the rise. It's important to Grinch-Proof your vehicle
from would-be criminals to ensure your holiday purchases are safe from
When shopping, remember to lock your car and keep shopping bags hidden
from view. Even an empty shopping bag can give the appearance that
there are items worth stealing within the vehicle, so use caution and
remove purchases as soon as possible, and keep your car locked.
When you return home remove all valuables from your vehicle including:
purses, GPS and all electronics. Also keep your car free from clutter
as this helps to reduce break-ins. Always keep your vehicle locked
even when it's in your driveway, and don't leave your garage door
opener inside your car as thieves can use it to gain access to your
home and your valuables.
Remember the key to a happy holiday season is safety, so take
precautions, be proactive and lock your vehicle.
