TRURO - Slowing down, paying attention to your driving, locking your vehicle and keeping valuables out of sight can go along way to make this holiday a happy one, police say.
The hustle and bustle of the holiday season traditionally leads to an increase in specific types of calls.
"The two weeks leading up to Christmas is a busy time," Truro Police Service Chief David MacNeil said.
"This time of year, thefts and collisions are what's keeping us busy."
During the past week the town police force has responded to 14 motor vehicle collisions while 25 people were observed speeding.
MacNeil reminds motorists to slow down, concentrate on the road and practice safe driving habits.
Criminals are also on the lookout for a quick present or two this time of the year as well.
"Don't leave your valuables in sight; lock your valuables in your trunk," MacNeil said.
During the weekend two vehicles parked at Truro hotels were entered and laptops stolen. MacNeil said it has had an increase in vehicles being entered.
