Securing your vehicle or bicycle against theft

Vehicle security

It can take a thief just ten seconds to break into your vehicle. With this in mind, you can take simple steps to keep it secure:

  • When leaving the vehicle, always close the windows and sunroof, lock the doors and activate any alarms or other security devices.
  • Park with care, particularly at night or if you are leaving the vehicle for a long time. If possible, leave your car in a busy, well-lit area.
  • Never leave cash, credit cards, chequebook, mobile phones, vehicle documents, keys or other valuables inside.

  • Ensure your bike is secured when not in use, ideally with two locks and attached to a solid, permanent structure like a bike stand.
  • Park it in a highly visible place.
  • Remove all accessories when leaving it.
  • Keep a ‘cycle passport’ so you can share all details about your bike with North Yorkshire Police if it is stolen.
