Safe Vacations!Have you ever had to leave your car at the airport for a long period of time? Sometimes if you’re leaving the country, you may have to leave it there for weeks! Here are a few tips on how to protect your car when traveling.

  1. Never leave anything of value in your car. Airport parking lots are like thief magnets. If somebody walks by and sees an iPhone sitting on the seat, they may do a smash and grab where they just smash your window open, take the wanted object, and run. If you must leave something in your car, make sure it’s in the trunk or a locked compartment.
  2. Try to find a good lot to park it in. Some airports will have their own parking lots with security. However if you don’t want to park it there, or if they just don’t have one, you can probably find paid parking structures around the area. When choosing one of these structures, make sure it has good security and keep your eyes out for glass on the ground. A lot of glass could mean that its a target for Smash and Grabs.
  3. Remove your starter fuse. If you look in your car’s manual, it should have a diagram on where your fuse box is and which fuse is for the ignition. If you take that fuse out when leaving your car, it will not start- even if it’s hot wired. (Just don’t loose it!)

Keep safety in mind, and have a safe vacation!
