Vehicle theft is a serious problem, which can leave you without your main mode of transportation for an extended period of time. If your vehicle is stolen, then there is an approximately 42% chance that the vehicle will be lost permanently. As such, it is important to take certain measures to protect your vehicle against theft. 
Nearly half of all automotive thefts are the result of driver error, so be sure not to make a avoidable mistake, such as leaving your keys or valuables where they can be clearly seen inside the vehicle, as this makes it more likely your vehicle will be targeted for theft. Other more active defensive measures can be taken, such as the installation of anti-theft protections such as alarms and wheel locks.
