Cold weather – never leave your car unattended

Hello,

Staffordshire Police have taken several reports from over the county this morning of cars being stolen as they’ve been left with the key in the ignition whilst defrosting ??

Please don’t make yourself an easy target for opportunist criminals. Don’t leave your car unattended if the engine is running.

  • Stay with your car at all times when defrosting to prevent your car from getting stolen!
  • Please take on the road and allow extra time, please do not rush.
  • Make sure you are able to see, clear all ice from your windows.
  • Ensure that your lights are clean and number plates are clearly visible and legible.
  • Keep your distance from other cars

Drive safe & take your time.
