It is also recommended that a you keep your automobile doors locked at all times, especially when in an unfamiliar area. If you must roll down your windows, be sure the window is not open wide enough for a person to put their hands and arms into the car. These two tips for drivers can prevent someone from hijacking your car or harming you.
