Don't leave anything on display in your car. Even an old coat on the back seat is a temptation for someone to “smash and grab.” Thieves steal first and think about value later. Thieves will smash a car window just to look inside a bag or box to see if it contains anything of value. Thieves are looking for easy opportunities, don't give it to them.
