Car Lockout Blues:

How to Deal With and Prevent one

(858) 905-5767

The car's locking system is there to keep people, belongings, and the vehicle safe. That does not mean that a mistake cannot be made. People do forget their keys inside the vehicle more often than not. This does not mean that you should break into the car, or use some DIY idea that might compromise the locking system.

What you want is a company that has the know-how and can get to you quickly to give you a hand. Towing Mira Mesa is knowledgeable and is located in San Diego, though we proudly serve some of the surrounding areas like Mira Mesa.

Why Do People

Forget Their Keys, Anyway?

It may not seem like something that could happen to you, but it might. The following are common reasons why some people forget their keys in the car:

Kids can be quite distracting, so it makes sense that they have been known to cause the driver to forget their keys

Talking on the phone or using the cellphone before getting keys

Being late to school, work, or any other event

Just keep these things in mind to help prevent a car lockout.
