Just the other day, we saw someone post on our neighborhood Facebook group reminding people to lock their car doors. It turns out that criminals were going car to car and seeing which car doors were locked and then opening those cars and taking whatever they could inside.
We get it, you’re supposed to lock your doors and it’s a pretty simple thing to do. But, have you ever forgotten to lock your door? We all have. Whether it’s due to one of your kids running into the house or maybe even a torrential downpour, there are many reasons that people sometimes forget to lock their car or house doors. You’re only human.
That being said, it’s never a bad idea to improve on remembering important things, like locking your doors. Even if you live in the safest neighborhood in the Lehigh Valley, it’s a good idea to lock your door.
Many times, car break ins are the result of simply leaving your car unlocked. Had you locked it, that criminal would have gone onto the next car.
The same can also be said for your home. There really is no good idea to leave your house unlocked at any time.
Do whatever it takes to remind you. Sometimes, the simplest things are the easiest. How about leaving a note right inside the house door? It’s a simple, but effective way to keep locking your doors, and keeping yourself and your loved ones safe.
