Auto Theft Increase
Don’t leave your vehicle unattended when warming up or to “run into the store for just a minute”. Not only is it illegal, but your insurance company may also penalize you for not properly securing it. This includes dropping your kid off at daycare and at the gas pump. Never, ever leave your kids alone in the vehicle when you stop at the store or for any reason, regardless if it's for “just a minute”.
