How to Protect Your Car from Criminals this Pandemic

Protect Your Car – Unfortunately, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to throw the world into chaos, criminals are taking advantage of the situation. As of 2020, close to 1 million motor vehicles had been stolen. Meanwhile, car relay theft gets achieved by unscrupulous persons in mere seconds. Read on, to learn how to best protect yourself from car thieves!

You can Stop Car Thieves who are Exploiting the Pandemic Era

Yes, everywhere in the world is a grim picture of the coronavirus pandemic wreaking havoc. Millions of people have been already infected by the disease, with many succumbing to untimely death including babies and young children.

You would think that this is a time in human history that would evoke more compassion from the hearts of billions of people all over the world. However, there are those individuals who remain unconscionable and they keep preying on innocent people whose spirits are already stretched thin by the global health crisis.

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, more than 720,000 motor vehicles were stolen in 2019. Automobiles accounted for 74.5 percent of these vehicle thefts.

On the other hand, the National Insurance Crime Bureau presented a higher figure for the same year in their study: 799,644. With an alarming increase of 9.2% in 2020: 873,080 stolen motor vehicles. The data did not include the rising incidence rate of car part thefts. Indeed, criminals have been especially targeting catalytic converters which are made of precious rare metals like platinum, palladium, and rhodium to sell in the black market.

So, how can you remain composed and quick-witted amidst all these tough challenges?

Make vigilance a daily habit. This can be attained by strictly following the following recommendations from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Interpol:

  • Do not leave your car key in or on your vehicle after parking.
  • Do not leave your car with the engine running even for just a short moment.
  • You must close and lock all windows and doors of your car when you park.
  • Choose secure, well-lit areas when parking your car.
  • You should never leave valuables in your car such as laptops, iPads, cell phones, and purses.
  • Never leave your vehicle registration in the car to make it very hard for car thieves to sell it, in case it gets stolen.
  • Protect your vehicle with an anti-theft system such as audible and visible devices, immobilizers, and vehicle recovery systems.
  • Secure your key fob in a bag or pouch with an RFID pocket that blocks raio signal transmission which car thieves use in their crime perpetration.
  • Take note of suspicious people around when parking and locking your car.
  • Drive away when you feel a threat.
