Purses in vehicles…please do not leave purses in vehicles while at the gas pump, the convenience store, dropping off or picking up children, and the many other quick stops that we all have to make throughout our day. Whether locked or unlocked, purses left on front seats, behind the driver seat, tucked in a side door pocket or left on the floorboards are targets for a criminal. Try not to bring the whole purse with you, but if you must, at least lock in the trunk before you head to your destination and anything you need while driving keep on your person in a pocket or small pouch.
