The Tip of the Week is- Be sensible about your keys. Do not put an address on your keys or key-ring and do not hide an extra key under a door mat or flower pot. When driving always lock your car door and keep windows up and never leave your keys in the ignition when you leave your car, even for a few minutes. Do not leave packages or other tempting articles on view in a locked car, put them in the boot of the car out of sight. Never pick up hitch hikers.
