Whether your vehicle is moving or stationary, bear the following in mind:

  • Don’t leave cell phones, bags, briefcases or other valuables where they are visible in the car.
  • Lock valuable items in the boot of your car or behind the seat if you drive a bakkie or pick-up truck.
  • Lock all doors and close all windows.
  • Be especially cautious in stationary or slow moving traffic.
  • Be constantly on the lookout for suspicious-looking characters. Do not hesitate to report them to the police.
  • Slow down when approaching red traffic lights at night and try to reach them only as they turn green.
  • Be wary of people standing at traffic lights or intersections.
  • Never open your window or door for any stranger.
  • If you encounter rocks, tyres or other obstacles in the road do not get out of your vehicle to remove them.
  • Reverse and drive in the opposite direction if necessary.
  • Always park your car in attended parking lots.
  • Always park in well lit areas at night.
  • Never sit in your vehicle without being conscious of your surroundings.
  • Never sleep in a stationary vehicle.
  • Always remove radios, CD or cassette players if possible.
  • Never leave children alone in a vehicle.
