Vehicle Thefts At An All-Time High

Posted on December 23rd, 2013 by Alert Protective

Locking car door

If you drive a sports car, an SUV or a luxury vehicle, it’s probably high on the list of “most likely to be stolen” according to statistics from the Highway Loss Data Institute. A recent study gauged the potential for vehicle theft by looking at those vehicles with the highest frequency of theft claims. The top 10 models on that list were all sport utility vehicles, seven of which were equipped with soft tops.

It’s estimated that nearly 2 million vehicles are reported stolen each year in North America. Certain other vehicles are also favorites of car thieves. For example, Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and Ford Taurus models rank high on the list of most frequently targeted passenger cars.

If your vehicle or vehicles fall into one of the high-risk categories, you may want to consider having a theft deterrent device or system added to your vehicle, if one wasn’t factory installed when you purchased it. You can further protect your vehicle by always locking it and taking the keys with you – even when it’s parked in your driveway.
