Careful drivers ensure they lock their cars before they leave them and check their fob has done its job.
But police are starting to see a spate of keyless thefts across the region and are asking drivers to take a moment to consider how they can protect their vehicle.
One of the most effective ways to stop someone stealing your vehicle (keyless or not) is to use a wheel lock. That way, even if thieves manage to open your car door they won’t be able to drive your vehicle away.
You can buy a steering wheel lock from a number of places, but West Midlands Police have partnered with Disklok, who are offering a 15 per cent discount on their products exclusively to drivers in the force area.
The discount is available to people who sign up to WMNow West Midlands Police crime and community safety alert system, for more details please sign up to WMNow.
