Most modern cars can only be started with a programmed key which has a special resistor in the key head. This means that you can't simply make a copy of your key like you would a house key. A copy will work, however, to unlock the doors. Carrying a copy, or the factory "valet key", in your wallet or purse, will save you the trouble of getting locked out of your car. Just be sure to carry it somewhere that it won't also get locked in your vehicle.
Carry a spare key
Locking your key inside your own car is one of the most inconvenient mistakes you can make. It becomes even more inconvenient, and dangerous, when it occurs during the late night hours. It used to be fairly simple to ask a police officer to assist you, but fewer and fewer police departments are issuing these tools in their patrol vehicles and it's illegal in many states to posses "slim-jims" and other equipment to enter a locked vehicle. There are a few things you can do to prevent having a disaster from locking yourself out of your car.

Keep a card in your purse or wallet

Once you find the right service, get a card or a phone number on paper and keep it somewhere that you can't lose it. Keeping the card in your wallet or purse should ensure that you can call when you need to and get back into your vehicle and home as quickly as possible.
Find a good lockout service in your area

In the event that you do get locked out, you need to know who you're going to call. You don't want to be looking up phone numbers in the middle of the night while you stand outside of your car. There are some important things to look for in a locksmith service. Make sure they can come at all hours. If you can't reach them when you need help, you'll be stuck again. Check where they're coming from and find one close to the locations where you park the most. This saves you from a long wait and extra fees. You may even need to find two if you commute a long distance and need a service in two different towns. Finally, be sure they have a reputation for being courteous and gentle with your vehicle.
