Is Your Car or Motorcycle a Target For Thieves?
Every 46 seconds, a motor vehicle is stolen in the United States. Recently, the Insurance Information Institute reported that a staggering 689,527 vehicles were reported stolen each year.
Just because you aren’t driving the latest model car or a luxury vehicle doesn’t guarantee that you won’t be a victim of theft. Actually, your older model vehicle might be exactly what the thieves are looking for. According to the FBI, the value of the average stolen vehicle is $6,537. Thieves do not discriminate between new, luxury, or older model cars because they are targeting a vehicle for the resale value of its parts. In fact, about 75,000 vehicles are stolen each year for their airbags alone, so that thieves can cash-in on them. But don’t forget that a thief can look at your registration in the glove box to get your home address and use the garage remote to get into your garage!
The National Insurance Crime Bureau states that motorcycle theft has risen by 6 percent in 2015. Most motorcycles are stolen during the warmer months of the year. Just like motor vehicles, thieves aren’t just targeting luxury models, every motorcycle is a target.
The only way to thwart potential theft is by taking preventative measures to protect your car or motorcycle.. Experts advise that the only way your car or motorcycle will be protected is for owners to install an aftermarket engine immobilizer and a GPS tracking device like The T3 Vehicle Security System. With the 911Tracker T3 Vehicle Security System, you are alerted the moment that your vehicle has unauthorized movement or a pre-installed vehicle alarm goes off. The alert will show you the GPS location, speed, and direction that your vehicle is traveling, and you can easily connect to the 911-Operator closest to your vehicle, allowing you to speak directly to police within seconds of the emergency. No call center is used – saving you time and money. Saving valuable time can save you, your family, your vehicle and your belongings. LoJack® doesn’t do this. OnStar® doesn’t do this. No other anti-theft system can do this. Want to start protecting your car or motorcycle? Now you can we are giving one lucky winner a T3! Enter now giveaway ends at the end of the month.
