Crime Tip: Safeguarding Your Vehicle At The Pump



When you pull into the gas station make sure you survey your surroundings and are aware who is in the area. Try to pick Stations that are well-lit and have video-surveillance cameras at the pump.Pick a pump with care. It might be worthwhile to wait for a pump nearest to the attendant or building. When you get out of your vehicle to get gas even if paying at the pump lock your doors, roll up your windows and make sure you remove your keys from the ignition. While you are paying with your credit/debit card at the pump a thief can run up to the passenger side of your car open the door and remove your property.   Thieves prey on victims who are distracted and turn their backs to the vehicle to pay at the pump.  The victim does not even realize that anything is missing until they have left the gas station.
