Transit police start decal program to halt auto thefts
The Maryland Mass Transit Administration Police, in cooperation with other state law enforcement agencies, is giving Maryland motorists the opportunity to discourage the theft of their vehicles by participating in the "Watch Your Car" program, said Frank Fulton, an MMTA spokesman.
By voluntarily registering their vehicles, Fulton said, participants sign an agreement stating their vehicle is not regularly in use between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. and giving police the right to stop the vehicle and verify its ownership and identify the driver.
Those registering will receive two reflective "Watch Your Car" decals to be placed on front and rear windows. Information: 1-800- 96-THEFT.
