Personal Car Safety Tips
  • Park close to any building you will be entering and/or choose a well-lit area that is heavily traveled.
  • Exercise caution when entering or leaving your car, especially in parking lots and garages.
  • Keep windows up and doors locked.
  • Do not leave property unattended and in plain sight on your seat, keep valuable items locked in your trunk.
  • Do not mark your key chain with your name, address, and license number. Lost keys can lead a thief to your car.
  • A reminder: Parking on campus is restricted. Illegally parked cars will be ticketed and/or could be towed.
  • Never leave your vehicle running when unattended.
  • Keep spare keys in your wallet or purse, not inside the vehicle where a thief can easily find them.
  • Write down your vehicle identification number (VIN), registration plate number, and title certificate number and keep them in a safe place.
