National Vehicle Theft Protection Month Begins

By Cornelius Nunev

More vehicles are stolen during July and August than at any time of the year, states an infographic prepared by LoJack. The hassle is part of the sixth yearly National Vehicle Theft Protection Month.

Supported by LoJack

LoJack, the maker of after-market vehicles security equipment, is in cahoots with the International Association of Auto Theft Investigators in the awareness effort.

Here are some of the most essential LoJack statistics that were displayed. They are:

1. Auto thieves cost the nation around $4.5 billion a year. 2. In 2010, there was only an average of 42.8 seconds between vehicle thefts in the U.S. That’s a total of 737,000 for the year. 3. The most stolen cars are ordinary ones like the Honda Accord, the Honda Civic and the Toyota Camry. However, 10 percent of all Corvettes made between 1981 and 2011 have been stolen. 4. Christmas Day is the holiday with the most auto thefts.

LoJack intercept survey

The survey by infographic revealed that 80 percent of consumers worry about auto theft regularly, but only a third actually try and prevent it. Sixty-eight percent said that sometimes they leave the car parked and unlocked or unattended while it is running. Most of them practiced bad habits that could lead to theft. There were 4,500 vehicle owners in four major cities included in the survey that was conducted between April and May of 2012.

Relating to identity theft

There is a link between car theft and identity fraud as well. In fact, 64 percent of people admit they put their home address in their GPS machine, making it easier for thieves to find your home. A 3rd of the respondents said that they have left personal information in an electronic device or on printed documents in plain sight in the car. These are bad habits for identity fraud.

Stay away from vehicle theft

According to the FBI, the number of car thefts dropped in 2011. Still, there are many things a vehicle owner can do to help reduce those numbers even further, particularly in these theft-heavy months.

The LoJack infographic lists numerous “common sense” rules that motorists would do well to follow every day:

“Never leave keys in the vehicle with the engine running. Don’t hide a spare key in the vehicle. Close all windows and lock all doors when leaving your vehicle. Park in a well-lit area and, when at home, keep your vehicle in the garage. Don’t leave valuables visible in your car, particularly those items that include information on your identity.”

Customers are encouraged by the business to buy its product that prevents theft and has recovery tracking systems in them.
