Although garages are not a huge part of urban living, especially here in Del Ray or Old Town Alexandria, we still tend to think of them as safe havens for our cars, tools, bikes and other household items.
Unfortunately that’s really not true. Want proof? This video shows someone breaking into a garage in just six seconds.
It may be a petty thief or it may be someone intent on doing bodily harm. Don’t count on your garage door to protect you:
- Set your car alarm while the car is in the garage
- Lock the door between your garage and your house
- Buy a garage door without windows.
It may be that none of these things will deter a serious intruder but at least you can slow them down.
