H.E.A.T. Provides Anti-Theft Guides for Students

Vacation days are almost over and students are preparing for the back-to-school season. Thatís why H.E.A.T. (Help Eliminate Auto Thefts) will promote vehicle protection and provide students and new drivers some tips and precautions on how to keep their vehicles and other properties safe from auto theft in the upcoming back-to-school season.

Here are the tips from H.E.A.T. to prevent your car from being stolen:

* Closed Not Cracked - Close windows tightly, don't even leave them "cracked" and always lock your car.

* Out of Sight - Keep all personal belongings, including iPods, cell phones and other
valuables, out of sight.

* Stop and Lock - Never leave your vehicle running and unattended, even just for a few minutes.

* Kill-Switch - Protect your vehicle from being started by a thief by having a mechanic install a concealed kill-switch.

* Double Duty - Add a second layer of protection to your vehicle by using a steering wheel locking device, a steering column protector or an alarm with a visible flasher.

* VIN - Consider etching your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) onto the glass surfaces of your vehicle. VIN etching makes vehicles less attractive to thieves because all windows must be replaced before the car is tagged with a fake VIN for resale.

* 1-800-242-H.E.A.T. - If you know anything about auto theft, report it to your local police department and H.E.A.T.'s confidential tip-reward line, 1-800-242-H.E.A.T.

Meanwhile, car safety is ensured if you check your auto parts for damages. You can look for quality replacements of your auto parts like Honda Civic parts at Auto Parts Deal.
