Car Security-Safety Tip Of The Week

As we have mentioned before, we have an active involvement in our neighborhood watch program. We get e-mails from our local police department on almost a daily basis on items that they feel may be of interest to people in the neighborhood watch program.

This past week we got a notification about a new technique that burglars use to break into cars. So this week’s safety tip is about that technique. Unfortunately from the story that was originally published on ABC news there is not much you can do about it at least at this point except don’t leave anything of value in your car-nothing, nada, zip, zero. Because with this new technique someone can break into your car and he’s not there to steal your car but to steal the contents.

We have mentioned before you shouldn’t even keep your registration and insurance paperwork in your car because that contains very useful information on where you live and who you are.

What this technique involves is the thieves figuring out a way to unlock cars equipped with security systems without even having to break a window or jimmy a lock. They do this by cracking the security codes so they are able to send the same unlock signal the owner’s key transmitter uses– is that scary or what?
