Don't let your warm car become a hot car


When you go out to start your car in the morning to warm it up, then run back inside to grab your coat, or your travel mug, for example. That's when thieves strike. They get away with your car and most likely your key chain, too. 

If you need to have a warm car, our recommendation would be to have a proper remote starter on the vehicle so you can remotely start it with the doors still locked.





Don’t Let Car Thieves Ruin Your Christmas

The Christmas season is here which means its time to head out to the local mall and load up on gifts. While the savings may be huge, the losses can also be big if you are unlucky enough to be hit b...y thieves who prowl the parking lots looking for a big haul. It’s not just presents they are stealing either, your entire car could be at risk.

Here are a few tips for keeping gifts safe:
•Put all of your gifts and any items of value in your trunk. If that is not a possibility, conceal them as best as you can.
•Always lock your vehicle and roll up all windows when leaving it in the parking lot.
•Car thieves often watch for shoppers that drop presents off and head back into the store so avoid unloading gifts and leaving your car in the same parking spot.
•Do not leave gifts in the car overnight if you do not have a secure garage.

But, because text messaging requires visual, manual, and cognitive attention from the driver, it is by far the most alarming distraction.

The best way to end distracted driving is to educate all Americans about the danger it poses.
