Outthinking Burglars or Playing into Their Hands?

If we knew the most likely place a thief might strike would we react differently? The front door and first-floor window are the most common places burglars enter homes. With that in mind, consider the percentage of people who have done the following:

  • Left windows open: 49 percent
  • Left front door unlocked: 37 percent
  • Left back door unlocked: 33 percent
  • Hid key outside: 26 percent
  • Left inside garage open: 22 percent
  • None of these: 28 percent
