Keeping Others from Taking Your Car

Your car is probably one of your most valuable material possessions. This is why it's important to prevent it from being stolen in any way possible. An easy way to prevent someone from stealing your car is to keep all of the doors locked at all times. Don't leave your keys in the ignition while you're parked or anywhere in plain view in the car.

While in Lafayette, don't leave your car unattended while it's running, even if you're at Lewis Motor Sales or another business. Some people tend to look for valuable items inside cars, prompting them to take the car instead of only the items that are inside. You can prevent this from happening by not keeping anything of value in plain view.

Although there are documents that you need to have while you're operating the car, don't leave them in the vehicle when you're not driving. A licensed driver can display the registration to the vehicle and claim that you let them borrow it for a short time.
