•Make sure your car is properly locked and keep keys away from doors and windows. This will reduce the chance of criminals amplifying the signal.
•Some keys have a function allowing them to be turned off. Check your manual to see if yours does and then use it.
•Use some kind of physical barrier such as a steering wheel lock, driveway parking post or a wheel clamp. This will deter many criminals.
•Fit a tracking device.
•Keep your keys in a Faraday bag to block the signal.
•Remove batteries from your spare keys.
And remember, be on the lookout for people acting suspiciously and report it by calling 999.
