Hampshire Police Petrol Pump Nozzle Campaign
A number of Police Forces around the UK have been working together with local councils to put together advertising campaigns to warn motorists of the dangers of not only leaving valuable items in their cars but also making sure car keys are hidden in the house and not left in open view.
Opportunist thieves have found a number of ways to break in to houses and steal cars from the driveways.
Police are suggesting using garages wherever possible or if not keep keys out of range of prying eyes. Hampshire Police have recently run a petrol pump nozzle campaign at station forecourts around the county to make motorists aware of not just improving car security but also to make sure the keys are not in view when in the house.
