Drive at a speed that will allow you to stop well within the distance you can see to be clear. You should allow at least a two-second gap between you and the vehicle in front. The gap should be at least doubled on wet roads and increased still further on icy roads

@WAR - Preventing Vehicle Crime

Preventing Vehicle Crime

Do not be complacent about keeping your property and your vehicle safe. By following the below advice you can help prevent opportunist thieves from striking.

Never leave anything on show in your vehicle and remember to take your sat nav and audio equipment with you. Always remove the sat nav cradle and wipe away the suction marks.

Remember, never leave the car with its engine running or the keys in the ignition and fit self-locking screws to prevent number plates being stolen and always lock your car and fully close its windows and sunroof when you are leaving it unattended. Double check by pulling your vehicles door handles to ensure the central locking system is working correctly.

Fit anti-theft devices to steering wheels, fuel caps and wheels and park in well-lit areas or in a secure car park. Never leave your mobile phone behind and do not store items in the boot, remember to take them with you.

Keyless entry vehicles, although convenient, are currently an extremely easy target for theft with increasing numbers being stolen. However, there are several steps you can take to reduce your risk.
