Every ten seconds a car is broken into somewhere in the United States. An experienced thief can brake into your car in 5 seconds, and braking into the trunk is even easier. Viet Nguyen of the Arlington County, VA police department advises parking in well lit areas. Another way to protect your car is by installing anti-theft devices such as wheel locks and ignition cut-off switches. The Insurance Information Institute urges drivers to always lock their cars. By making your car harder to steal than the one parked next to it, you lessen the likelihood that your car will be stolen.
