Key or fob left inside vehicle. A report from the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) shows that during the 3-year period from 2016-2018, a total of 229,339 vehicles were stolen because drivers left their keys in their vehicles — a 56% increase since 2015.  (Photo: Shutterstock)

It’s not a smart move, but it happens everyday. Someone’s in a hurry and either by accident or on purpose, leaves the keys in their vehicle. Risky behavior.
