You might think that tossing your purchases in the trunk keeps them safe, but this may not be a good choice.
Technology is helping crooks with a tool called “scanner boxes” which can override key-less entry systems. Once the thief is inside your car, they can open the trunk, take your gifts and go.
Are you being watched? Criminals keep an eye out for shoppers who stash purchases in their cars. You can reduce your theft risk by putting your items in the trunk and then moving your car to a different parking spot. A thief who sees you leaving the space will start looking for a new potential victim.
Holiday shopping can be stressful enough. Don’t leave your car vulnerable and increase your stress.
