Car theft has been a blight on the UK for decades, but according to a Freedom of Information request to the DVLA in Swansea, the LE2 postcode in Leicester had the highest number of car thefts in the UK in 2021. In that one postcode alone, the Police recording 342 thefts of vehicles, almost one per day over the course of a year.
If you live in or around Leicester, or elsewhere in the UK, then there’s never been a better time to protect your vehicle with a car tracker from the team here at Infiniti. Whether you’ve got a top-of-range luxury car or a family car you all rely on, car security has become not only a necessity but something you can get regardless of your budget.
HOW ARE VEHICLES TARGETED?
The type of cars stolen aren’t just the higher-end models you would normally associate with car theft. The models taken by thieves are spread throughout the vehicular spectrum, but it’s interesting to note that the vehicles in the target differ.
Luxury cars like BMW, Range Rover, Jaguar and Porsche attract thieves who steal to order. This means that gangs specifically target certain types of cars that have been ordered by their customers, often with the car thieves travelling from one area to the next to accomplish their shopping list. Sometimes these lists can get very specific, often looking at limited edition models, design, colour or even specifications. Luxury cars aren’t the only temptations.
Many of the cars stolen come from some of the most popular manufacturers like Ford, VW and Vauxhall. These warriors of the road cars are often at the heart of family life and play a key part in getting the kids to school, the work commute and general day-to-day activities. These make up the majority of the vehicles stolen, with the Ford Fiesta, VW Golf and the Corsa from Vauxhall taking up the top three slots on Leicester’s most-stolen cars, so how do you protect yourself?
