According to the NHTSA, “a motor vehicle is stolen every 40.9 seconds in the United States”. Protecting your car, and the belongings inside, can be difficult. The NHTSA report “there are numerous anti-theft systems and devices designed to make vehicles more difficult to steal or easier to trace and recover.” Some of these devices include:
1. Audible and Visible Devices: These devices, such as a horn alarm, deter theft by bringing attention to an unauthorized attempt to steal or enter a vehicle. Visible devices create a visual threat/warning/deterrence, such as the use of steering-wheel locks, as well as theft-deterrent decals, flashing lights, and window etching.
2. Immobilizing-Type Devices: These prevent thieves from bypassing a vehicle’s ignition system and hot-wiring the vehicle. Some incorporate computer chips in ignition keys or disable the flow of electricity or fuel to the engine.
3. Vehicle Recovery Systems: These devices use electronic transmission technology that help law enforcement reveal the location of stolen vehicles—and possibly catch the thief in the act.
