How do you prevent your car from being stolen? For starters, lock your doors at night. To further prevent that, the LAPD released a 7 minute DIY Zombie movie.

They didn't stinge on the effects either. From glass smashing to the makeup of the zombies, the undead are gunning for your valuables from your cars.

A little before the 5-minute mark, Captain Jeffrey Bert comes on to provide some real talk. He says that "21,000 vehicles have been burglarized in the city of Los Angeles," and:
If you just lock your car you reduce your chances by about 30 percent of having people break into your car. And then if you hide your valuables, your purses, your iPods, your cellphones, any loose change, if you're a pirate your bag of jewels, anything you can do, tuck that stuff away, you're gonna reduce your chances of being a victim.
It's hard to imagine that people don't lock their doors. Why wouldn't they do that? Isn't it...common sense?
