Camouflage Your Home with Your Neighbor's Car

Most travelers are well aware that accumulated mail and
newspapers around their homes are billboards to thieves. You
might as well leave a note saying, "We're on vacation - help

One often-overlooked tip-off is the absence of a car in the
driveway. What's even more revealing is a car parked
directly in front of the garage door and in the exact same
spot for several days.

This driveway dilemma is easily solved. Ask neighbors or
friends to park their cars in your driveway overnight, on
the weekends and for as much of the day as possible.

An intermittently parked car that changes locations in the
driveway provides excellent camouflage for an empty house.
