Cheap but Important Investment

If you’ve ever locked yourself out of your car, you may appreciate the value of having a spare set of keys. But there are other reasons to invest in an extra set or two:

Warm up the car, with the doors locked, on cold days while you wait in the house
Empower your spouse, family member, or friend to have access to the car

If you have an extra set of keys, where should you keep them? It may be a good idea to have spare sets in the office and at home, and to allow at least one person you live with to have a set.

Still, that doesn’t solve the problem of locking your keys in the car when you stop for coffee in the morning. There are a couple of ways to prepare for this. You can either keep a spare key in your wallet or purse (just don’t leave it in the car too!), or you can place a magnetic key holder under the car. The latter approach, however, may be considered a direct invitation to thieves, so it may not be the best idea.

As this is a defensive driving blog, you may wonder how all this is relevant. Well, it’s all about thinking defensively, which is precisely what a good defensive driving course online is designed to do. In short, a defensive driving class will help you be prepared. Like extra car keys, it's a cheap but important investment.

A good alternative to a hide-a-key is using duck tape. You can use duck tape to attach your key to your hubcap.
