Got a Car? Now's the Time to Take EXTRA Precautions in Dorset


4:04pm 2nd April 2013

Your car is more likely to be broken into in March, April and May...

That's according to the Dorset Police.

They have said this can often be the result of an increase of visitors to the county and also a change in the weather.

In 2011, 841 reports of vehicle crime were reported in Dorset during these months. This rose by 13% (106 offences) in 2012.

So, it may be something we've all heard before but Superintendent Steve Thorp says it's now even more important you remember not to leave anything in your car.

He told Wessex FM, ""If a thief thinks there is something of value in your car, they will try their luck. A few CDs left on your front seat may not be of great value to you but the inconvenience of the damage caused to your vehicle is far greater than the theft itself."

He continued to say, "The best advice is not to leave anything in your car. Leave it at home, or take it with you."
