 With expensive portable devices becoming ever more commonplace, a parked car can be a more appealing target to criminals than other forms of theft.

Mark Bower-Dyke, chairman of Be Wiser Insurance, comments:

"Many of us are carrying very expensive "gadgets" around with us. Whilst we might never leave our mobile phones behind, it's not uncommon to leave MP3 players and even laptops in the car. This makes parked cars a profitable target for thieves."

Anti-theft technology found in most vehicles makes stealing the actual car too high risk for most criminals. Breaking into a car for its increasingly valuable contents on the other hand is much less risky.

Mark Bower-Dyke comments:

"Many motorists believe the car itself is more likely to be the target of theft, but in reality it's much simpler for a thief to walk off with your iPod. A car is most likely to be targeted if there are items on show, or bags which might actually have items concealed within them".

Mark Bower-Dyke offers this advice:

"Leaving valuables, backpacks, handbags and briefcases visible can make the car an easy target. Ensuring all bags which could contain valuables are hidden from sight (ideally in the boot of the car) should reduce your chances of being targeted."
