The Primrose police are still warning the community of Primrose to refrain from parking their vehicles on the pavement.

“You are inviting the criminals to come target your vehicle when you park it on the pavement,” said communications officer Const Styles Maoma.

To help combats motor vehicle theft in the area the SAPS have compiled a list of safety tips for the community to take into account when they are parking their vehicles:

  • Avoid parking your motor vehicle where there are no security officers guarding other cars.
  • Do not leave your firearm in the motor vehicle’s glove compartment or anywhere in the vehicle when you park the vehicle (this is against the law).
  • Make sure that all the doors and windows are properly locked when you park your vehicle.
  • Valuable items like a laptop and camera should be put in the boot of your vehicle if left in the vehicle while parked.
  • At night, park in well-lit areas.
  • If in doubt about the safety of an area, phone a police station for advice.
  • Practice the same prevention skills you apply in parking lots or garages at home.
  • Do not leave your keys in the ignition.
  • Remove detachable radios and the radio’s face when getting out of the car.
  • Try to fit an alarm and/or anti-theft device in your car.
