Police push 'lock it' crusade
IF YOU see a notice from police on your car windscreen, you could be lucky that it is just a warning, not a ticket.
From Thursday, Yeppoon police will be attaching letters to vehicles and also dropping them in letterboxes and shopping centres to remind residents to lock their cars.
Last month, every vehicle that thieves got into in Yeppoon was unlocked.
Under the Queensland Transport Operations Act, motorists are required to lock their car if they move more than three metres from it, and could face a $40 fine.
