You have just bought yourself a new vehicle and are pleased with your purchase, but how long will you have it? The RCMP have released the top stolen vehicles in BC. Is your vehicle on the list?
Trucks are rising in popularity to thieves and a pickup is now the number 1 stolen vehicle in BC. While auto thefts were down almost 5% in 2016 there are still 32 auto thefts per day in our province.
Even with a decrease in thefts the RCMP urge us to take preventative measures to make our vehicles less appealing for thieves. They recommend the use of anti-theft devices, not leaving valuables in your car, storing items out of sight and to not leave a running vehicle unattended. There is a full list of tips online at baitcar.com.
You should also be aware that older vehicles are becoming more popular to thieves due to them being less likely to have an electronic engine immobilizer.
