The SAPS have compiled a list of safety tips for the community to take into account when they are parking their vehicles:

  • Avoid parking your motor vehicle where there are no security officers guarding other cars.
  • Do not leave your firearm in the motor vehicle’s glove compartment or anywhere in the vehicle when you park the vehicle (this is against the law).
  • Make sure that all the doors and windows are properly locked when you park your vehicle.
  • Valuable items like a laptop and camera should be put in the boot of your vehicle if left in the vehicle while parked.
  • At night, park in well-lit areas.
  • If in doubt about the safety of an area, phone a police station for advice.
  • Practice the same prevention skills you apply in parking lots or garages at home.
  • Do not leave your keys in the ignition.
  • Remove detachable radios and the radio’s face when getting out of the car.
  • Try to fit an alarm and/or anti-theft device in your car.
