Unfortunately, car crime is always going to be a problem. That’s not just in London, but all over the UK. Thousands of people suffer from vehicle theft month after month and the trend is showing no sign of slowing down. In fact, statistics show that over 114,000 vehicle thefts occurred between 2018 and 2019 in England and Wales. If we are all so well-prepared to combat car theft, why is this type of problem still rife? At this time of year – leading up to Christmas and New Year – theft also seems to spike a little. Therefore, it may be time to start looking for car tracker installation in London, Manchester and elsewhere.
Car Theft is Evolving
The reason why so many vehicles continue to get stolen is due to an evolution in criminal behaviour. While breaking and entering is still a quick way for many people to get into cars and drive them away, there are more sophisticated ways for criminals to get away undetected. For example, some thieves go as far as to clone keys or to steal them outright. This is often a clean way for them to make a getaway without triggering alarms or leaving a trail. OBD (vehicle diagnostic post) hacking to is growing in popularity, as is relay theft. Relay theft occurs when thieves intercept keyless entry signals to gain access.
Essentially, the rise in convenient technology has also led to a convenient crime. However, that doesn’t mean we have to stand by and watch it all happening.
