Keep your Car From Being Stolen 

Hey there guys and gals, welcome back to my vehicles and motors blog. Anyone here ever had their car stolen, or even just broken into? I just got off the phone with my little brother( a fairly new driver that could do with reading my new driving post) who had his beefed up truck stolen from right outside the house! That is crazy! I wouldn’t doubt if it was unlocked when it got stolen, but still. I told him that it might be a good idea to check out to see if there are any cheap trucks he can get right now until insurance kicks in, and that might take quite a while. In support of my little bro, here are a couple tips to deter thieves away from your car, whether they plan on stealing your car or just your possessions inside. 

Car Theft 

Dash Lights

The simplest way to deter thieves away from their video is to make them think that breaking into your car (or house even for that matter) is going to be too difficult and not worth the risk. One way to make your car look like a riskier pick to a thief is by having an alarm system in the car with a blinking light on the dashboard or the windshield. If your vehicle didn’t come with this feature and buying one seems to expensive, then consider buying an LED dash light (like the one for sale on Thieves can’t tell the difference without getting inside the car, and if that happens then you have already lost.

The Club

Otherwise known as a steering wheel lock, the club is a well known device around the world. So well know in fact that the mere sight can send thieves off in the other direction looking for something worth stealing. Strangely enough usually when I see the Club in action it is usually in some little beater and never in something newer, although they probably have something to accomplish the same. Nevertheless, it is a good idea to get a club if you are worried, they can be found really cheap for sale online at website like so there is really no excuse for not having one if you need it.

Anti Theft Devices

If all else fails or you are simply too worried, then you can always have an anti-theft device installed in your vehicle. This is usually achieved by having some sort of extra button or switch that must be started in order to start the video, sometimes requiring an additional key as well. I have heard lots of good stuff about Ravelco, and after talking to some on the install guys I would 100% recommend them if you are worried about parking your car on the streets somewhere. I hope this was an informative post for everyone, I know I will be sending it to my brother later.
