69,547 Car Thefts in 2014 - Don't be another statistic

It was another busy year for car thieves as data from the Office for National Statistics revealed almost 70,000 incidents of vehicle theft were reported in 2014 alone!


Despite thefts falling 1.2% on the previous year and car manufacturers investing billions of pounds into clamping down on car theft, on average a staggering 190 cars were nicked each day, proving more needs to be done to eradicate the problem plaguing the country!

Almost 50% of the cars stolen were taken without keys, which shows even the most sophisticated vehicles are vulnerable, and in some cases much more desirable to thieves who are looking to make some quick cash, £££!
