As the chilly season approaches, and the first layers of frost start to cover our gardens – the Motorsparks team wanted to bring something to your attention – something that may never have even crossed your mind.
Wintertime is car-stealing time.
For those of us who may not have the heated wind-screen luxury of an instant de-ice, or a car heater that turns our vehicle into a volcanic hub of happiness, we have to make do with the traditional ice-scraping, turn the car on, turn the heater on, run inside while the vehicle de-frosts and you finish your cup of tea, or get the kids together.
Did you know that in these 5 – 10 minutes renders one of the most popular times for car thieves to strike?
The AA recently posted a great article about exactly that – and the risks that the chilly season brings. So – next time you arrive to find your windscreen iced up, and the car freezing inside – don’t turn it on and run. Brave the elements, for just a few minutes and who knows – it may just be the thing that protects you against losing your vehicle – just when you need it most.
