July has highest number of car thefts and burglaries

Dallas-Fort Worth police departments are joining together to warn car owners that the month of July averages the highest number of car thefts and burglaries.  The departments have launched a public awareness campaign to last all month titled, “Watch Your Car.”

Experts say the reason the summer months have higher numbers of car thefts and burglaries is because drivers often leave their cars unlocked and running while the air conditioner starts and cools down the car.  In addition, many people breaking into or stealing cars are often just trying to avoid the heat like anyone else.

Furthermore, statistics show that half of stolen cars were left unlocked and almost a third had the keys left in the ignition.
