According to the Texas Auto Burglary and Theft Prevention Authority (ABTPA), every two minutes in Texas, a car is burglarized for contents or parts.
Every five minutes, a car is stolen.
The Texas ABTPA wants you to know that you hold the key to preventing those things.
This month has been named "Watch Your Car Month" and now more than ever, Texas drivers are urged to become actively involved in vehicle crime prevention.
It's as easy as practicing three simple guidelines.
Lock, Take and Hide.
Lock your vehicle. Take your keys. And hide your belongings.
Last year, around 94-thousand cars were stolen in Texas and in almost half of the cases, the keys were left inside the car.
Don't be a victim.
