Parking Safely in Public

White-van-2-with-sign-2-extractedFor a big city like San Antonio security should always be on your mind when doing anything- and parking is no exception. When leaving your car unattended there are always risks to look out for. This is why parking safely in public is essential.

When parking your car there are several things to keep in mind so you can feel at ease. Typically you want to avoid attention from car thieves at all times. You want to detract anything that highlights your car.

Safe Parking- Illumination

Parking safely in public areas try and find a parking spot that is lit up. Park under a street lamp or next to a lit up building to increase your chances of thwarting a car thief.
The minute a thief sees your car is lit up like the empire state
building he’ll most likely move onto a car parked in darkness.

Safe Parking- Away from exits

When parking in garages or parking lots make an effort to part as far away from the exit/entrance as possible.
Normally a car thief will try to go for a car closest to the exit for the quickest escape. A car parked next to the exit is very attractive to a car thief.
For safe parking make sure to park as far away as you can from the exit. When a thief sees your car he’ll count it as too much work and too high of a risk, and most likely move on.

Safe Parking- Camouflage

Another good tip for parking safely in public is to try parking between a group of cars. A car on its own stands out to a car thief so by parking between a group of cars you can camouflage your vehicle.
A car parked alone will cause a car thief to put his direct attention towards it.

It’s an issue some of us face every morning before work. You get dressed, eat your breakfast and head for your door- only to realize you’ve lost something. What’s that? Oh that’s right, your keys. Sound familiar? Being more organized is one obvious solution, but for some of us that’s asking a lot.

How to stop losing your car keys?

Designate only one area for your keys- When we toss our keys on the table, and the bed, and the kitchen counter, etc. it gets way too confusing when trying to locate them. With so many possible spots they could be hiding in you could find yourself searching for hours. By designating one area- a hook by your door or on a bookshelf in the living room- you eliminate countless amounts of possible hiding spots, limiting your search time.

Remembering- It can be easy for some to forget to put their keys away immediately as they enter their home- even locksmiths. Keys can end up remaining in your pockets for some time before you finally put them away. Place an eye-catching colored bowl by your front door- within your immediate line of sight. Hopefully, the color will attract you and remind you to place your keys in the bowl AS SOON AS you enter your home.

Purchasing a key ringer- A useful gadget when trying to locate a lost set of keys. A key ringer rings (duh) allowing you to find it with your ears. They aren’t expensive and are extremely clutch in a rush, much faster than calling a locksmith. This is another effortless way to keep track of your beloved key-ring.

With these easy tips you can spend less days searching for your lost car keys and more days being on time for work. Of course if you need a new copy of the lost key give S.A. Locksmith and Security a call. If you liked these helpful tips wont you give this post a like, and maybe comment with some of your own tips? I’d be more than happy to read what you got.
