Car Crime Hits A New LowAuthor: Matthew Bell 

By 1st February 2017No Comments
The Home Office have recently released a report that shows vehicle crime is now the lowest it has been in the UK since records began in 1981. Advances in car security have undoubtedly played a large role in this reduction. Modern number plate recognition systems, alarms and trackers act as a deterrent to the less adept thief or vandal, while making it increasingly more difficult for organised gangs.
This reduction is even more impressive when you consider the increase in vehicles on our roads over this time period. There are approximately 8 Million more vehicles on the road today than just over twenty years ago, but break-ins are at just a quarter of what they were, 10 in every 1000, as appose to 40 in every thousand in 1993, and thefts are nearly at one sixth of what they where, now 3 in every 1000 compared to 20 in every 1000 previously.
