Thinking about buying a metal garage? Now may be the best time.
With the warm weather here to stay, you’re soon to see many more people enjoying their time outside. From going to the beach to traveling for vacation, the summer months are a bust but enjoyable time for most. However, there is also one downside of the warm weather that you likely haven’t thought of.
When Temperatures Rise, So Does Crime
Every year when the temperatures rise and there are more people out and about, instances of crime tend to increase. Criminals are more inclined to break the law when the weather is pleasant because it makes any sort of crime easier to plan. There are often more people around and it is easier to move around without being noticed or thought of as suspicious.
Many of these criminals choose to steal from vehicles, and for a number of reasons. During warm and pleasant weather, vehicle owners are more likely to leave their car doors unlocked and their windows rolled down. This allows passersby to easily spot valuable items that you may keep in plain sight in your vehicle. With unlocked doors or open windows, criminals can quickly make off with your property without being seen or heard. If you fall victim, you might be fortunate enough to not have your entire car stolen.
Obviously, there are a few immediate ways to avoid becoming a victim of theft. Keep your vehicle clean and organized and keep valuables and change out of plain sight; criminals likely won’t steal from a vehicle if they don’t see anything useful. Also, keep your car locked and your windows closed at all times.
