Icy Cars Target For Thieves


With most of the UK this week going to be subjected to freezing temperatures this week it will be the usual morning ritual and out with the scrapers and deicers. Don’t be tempted to start the car and leave it to defrost while you go finish you morning coffee, you may find your car has disappeared. A leading car recovery firm Tracker, which fits electronic locator devices says that one car is stolen every 5 minutes and 84% of cars it recovers are taken with the owner’s keys. The advances in modern car security make it increasingly difficult to seal cars without the keys. Thieves take advantage of a cold snap and target those owners who take the risk of leaving their cars unattended with the keys in. Worse still most drivers don’t realize that insurance companies will likely to refuse the claim. So take care during the cold snap !
