Here’s a quick safety tip in time for Christmas. If you park your car outside, rather than in your attached garage, you’re taking more than one chance.
First of course, your car is susceptible to burglary if you have left any valuables (including Christmas gifts) inside.
Second, if you have a garage door opener in your car, it’s easy for someone to break a car window, open your garage door, and enter your house. To minimize the chance of this happening you can do two things.
If your garage door opener is removable, take it into the house with you. And always lock the door from your garage to your house. This will not stop a burglar, but will at least slow him down and possibly discourage him from entering your home.
