The majority of vehicle crime can be prevented. By taking some simple steps that will only take a few moments, you can ensure your cars, motorbikes and bicycles are kept as safe and secure as possible.
Cars, motorbikes and bicycles are appealing to thieves, and poor security can make the theft of and theft from vehicles easier for criminals. It can be distressing, annoying and can cause a lot of inconvenience for the owner.
There are three categories of property commonly stolen from vehicles:
Category 1 property
This is property that is stolen from within the vehicle that should not have been left there and includes: mobile phones; sat-navs; laptops; handbags; wallets; coins; shopping; vehicle documents, such as registration documents and anything else of value left on view.
Category 2 property
This is property that is stolen from within the vehicle that needs to be there and includes: sound systems (the installed parts, not the removable facia if it has one); insurance discs; disabled driver badges, and fuel.
This is property that is stolen off the vehicle and includes: wheels; spare wheels (especially those carried in insecure cradles beneath the car); top boxes; registration (number) plates and catalytic converters (particularly from vehicles with high ground clearance, such as 4X4s).
Theft of property from vehicles can only occur if:
We can therefore reduce our chances of becoming a victim if we minimise the availability of property worth stealing or do something to make it less attractive to the thief or more difficult to take and do something about reducing the opportunity to commit the theft.
Motorbikes and scooters are also targets for thieves and more motorbikes and scooters are stolen than cars. Make it difficult for them by applying some basic security techniques.
A lock for your motorbike is a must - a good disc lock or a U-lock applied correctly should always be used when you leave your motorbike unattended.
Get a combined alarm and electronic immobiliser fitted professionally and make sure you set the alarm every time you leave your motorbike.
When leaving your motorbike for prolonged periods of time, it’s a good idea to secure it to something solid. At home you can install special attachments to lock your motorbike to.
Have your motorbike marked with its vehicle identification number.
