LAST YEAR, THERE WERE NEARLY ONE-AND-A-HALF-MILLION THEFTS, FROM MOTOR-VEHICLES, IN THE U-S.  THE TEMPTATION IS GREATER AROUND THE HOLIDAYS; THAT'S BECAUSE VEHICLES FILLED WITH EXPENSIVE HOLIDAY-GIFTS CAN MAKE THE PAYOFF EXTRA-SWEET FOR CAR-THIEVES.  BUT, IT'S NOT JUST HOLIDAY-GIFTS ANYMORE:  NOW, MORE AND MORE THEFTS TARGET G-P-S-SYSTEMS--NOT TO MENTION CELL-PHONES, LAPTOPS, STEREOS, WALLETS, AND PURSES.  HOW CAN YOU PROTECT YOUR VEHICLE?  FIRST, ALWAYS LOCK YOUR CAR, AND TAKE THE KEYS WITH YOU--EVEN IN YOUR OWN DRIVEWAY, AND ON YOUR OWN STREET.  AND, NEVER LEAVE YOUR CAR RUNNING WITH THE KEYS IN THE IGNITION.  ALSO, REMEMBER TO PARK IN WELL-LIT AREAS--ESPECIALLY OVERNIGHT.  AND, LAST BUT NOT LEAST, KEEP ALL VALUABLES OUT OF SIGHT:  THIS GOES NOT ONLY FOR GIFTS, BUT ALSO FOR OTHER VALUABLES.  SPECIFICALLY, WITH G-P-S-DEVICES, REMOVE THE UNIT, THE MOUNTING-BRACKET, AND THE POWER-CORD, WHEN POSSIBLE--AND STOW EVERYTHING COMPLETELY OUT OF SIGHT.  FOR MORE TIPS ON KEEPING YOU AND YOUR VEHICLE SAFE DURING THE HOLIDAYS, GO TO "STATE-FARM"-DOT-COM-SLASH-"AUTO-THEFT".
