Well, most of you know that I have never been great at remembering things or always doing the stuff I am supposed to do. I am however, great at getting myself into trouble, and great at getting myself into "pickles". I have locked myself out of my car several times in the past. However, I have always been lucky enough that I didn't have to call a Cambridge Locksmith, since there has always been one nearby. If you are like me and you have a problem with getting into trouble, read on for some tips of what to do to prevent you get locked out of your car! 

Tip #1: Don't Panic. 
Have a spare made. I know, sounds simple enough right. You can buy one of those metal magnetic "key holders" and hide the extra key in plain sight under your vehicle. Or, you can always leave your spare with a spouse, family member or friend that could bring it to you in an emergency. 

Tip #2: Get Roadside Assistance
If you, like me, are prone to accidentally locking yourself out, it might be advantageous for you to sign up for a roadside assistance program like AAA. Even if you don't lock yourself out, you can get other benefits too, like towing protection, help changing a flat, a new battery if yours dies, even gas if you run out on the side of the road! 

Tip #3: Get OnStar.
OnStar isn't available on all makes and models of cars, but if you can get it on yours, it is a great investment. OnStar can send a remote signal to unlock your vehicle, wherever you are! It is a great investment for the amount of protection and services you get for the price! It is even standard on some new vehicles for the first year! 

Tip #4: Ask A Cop
Cops and even firefighters can usually help you get into your car if you lock yourself out. Of course, if they have more important work to do, it might take them awhile to get to you for help, but most of the time, they will help you out, and for free!
