Vehicle Theft Prevention
Did you know that July is Vehicle Theft Prevention Month? According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 700,000 drivers fall victim to this costly crime each year. Just halfway through this year, Erie has experienced 23 vehicle thefts – that’s as many as had occurred in all of 2019 (18), and 2020 (18)! To reduce motor vehicle theft, take the key; do not leave it in or on the vehicle; close and lock all windows and doors when you park; and never leave valuables in your vehicle, especially if they can be seen outside the vehicle.
