Never leave your car running with the keys in it, and always remember to put valuables in your trunk or out of sight, especially during the holiday season.

Leaving your car running, or leaving items of value, even change, in plain sight can be an invitation to the criminally minded to steal or break into your car.

The problems of getting repairs and replacing stolen items is far greater than just taking some simple steps to avoid having your car broken into in the first place.

Take some time and enjoy your holidays!
