Practice these simple safety tips and start your holiday season off right.
Check out your surroundings and park in a well-lit area. Always have your keys out and ready. When leaving your vehicle, turn off lights, close all windows and lock your car. Always check inside and around your car before entering. If you see something suspicious report it or have a store employee or security escort you.
Don't advertise items in your vehicle. Conceal your purchases or put them in your trunk. It only takes seconds to break your windows and take your purchases.
