Safe Communities highlights National Theft Prevention Month

 
Wood County Safe Communities announced earlier this week that there have been 8 fatal crashes in Wood County for the calendar year of 2019, compared to the 7 for the same period in 2018.
 
This month Safe Communities highlights National Theft Prevention Month. Motor vehicles are the essential method of transportation for the vast majority of us, and frequently, a crucial piece of our lives. Imagine what may occur if one day your vehicle vanished.  Vehicle burglary is an extravagant wrongdoing, with the expense of stolen vehicles pegged at more than $5.9 billion – that is billion with a “B”.
 
Summers prove to be the worst season for vehicle theft. Nearly three quarters of a million vehicles were stolen in the United States this past year. In fact, according to the NICB, an average of 209 vehicles are stolen in the U.S every single day, simply because the keys or key-less entry key fob was left in the vehicle, while parked in the owner’s driveway or at the convenience store. Some vehicles are even left unlocked, running and unattended.
 
Ohio currently ranks seven out of ten in the most stolen vehicles. Let’s take action! Here are some ways you can help prevent motor vehicle theft.
 
  • Close and lock all windows and doors when you park
  • Park in well-lit areas.
  • Do not leave the area while your vehicle is running.
  • Do not leave your keys in your vehicle
  • Always stow away your valuables
