If you own a 2021 or older Hyundai with key ignition or any KIA, we have free steering wheel locks available. Due to the increasing number of thefts of these cars, KIA and Hyundai Corporate have supplied a limited number of steering wheel locks to help protect your vehicle.
Please see the times and locations to pick up your free steering wheel lock. You will need to bring the car’s registration and your Id. This event is open to Bellevue residents.

Deter car prowls and thefts
Remember always to lock your vehicle, remove the keys and do not leave anything of value inside. If possible, park in well-lighted areas. Do not leave a running car unattended.
Anti-theft devices, such as steering wheel locks and car alarms will make your vehicle less attractive to thieves. Many times, prowls and thefts are crimes of opportunity, so anything you can do to make your vehicle more difficult to break into or steal, the better.
