Vehicle security

Many stations provide car parks for passengers. Follow our tips to keep your vehicle safe and secure when parking in public spaces.


Before you leave home

  • Permanently mark any valuables you use in your vehicle (eg Sat Nav, CD player) with your postcode and house number/name. You can register all of your equipment at
  • Use locking wheel nuts to prevent the theft of your wheels, particularly if you have alloys.
Choosing a safe place

  • Look for a car park with the 'Park Mark' sign. These designated car parks have complied with specific measures to deter crime and anti-social behaviour.
  • Whenever possible, park in a busy, well-lit and CCTV covered area.
  • Use a mechanical or electronic immobiliser such as a steering lock.
  • Always remember to set the alarm.
After you park

  • Lock all items out of sight in the boot. Don’t leave anything on display and take valuables with you.
  • If you have a Sat Nav place the cradle out of sight and take the system with you. Don’t forget to wipe the suction marks off the window.
  • Take all personal correspondence in the vehicle with you. Don’t give others access to important personal information or your home address.
