As the weather gets colder, the Grenville County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) would like to remind the public to never leave your vehicle running and unattended, even if it is for a short moment, such as running into a convenience store. A vehicle running, or a vehicle with keys in the ignition attracts thieves.
You can additionally protect your vehicle and its contents, by locking doors, removing valuables out of sight, completely closing all windows and parking in well-lit locations. Addi- tionally, consider installing a steering wheel locking device, a locking fuel cap or a vehicle tracking system. Taking such precautions is the best defence to help prevent motor vehicle theft.
