Prevent Car Thefts
Take Keys Out of the Ignition
Leaving a car running with the keys in the ignition not only invites thieves, it is also against City Code.
Many car thefts are crimes of opportunity that occur when doors are unlocked and keys are visible. Using a remote start is okay... but a vehicle left running with the keys in the ignition is not.
City Code 9-118 says: "Every person parking a passenger automobile on a public street, alley, public parking lot, or place affected with a public interest in the City shall lock the ignition, remove the key, and take the key with them."
What this means: do not leave a vehicle running unattended, with keys in the ignition.
