NCIB advocates a “layered” approach to auto theft protection. Using the standard anti-theft features that come with your car, including always locking your car, is the first line of defense. A warning device or alarm is the second line of defense. In addition, an immobilizing device, such as a fuel cutoff or smart key that prevents the vehicle from being driven can be added on. The final “layer” of security is investing in a tracking device that allows law enforcement officers to track and recover a vehicle if stolen.

Typically older, uninsured cars are stolen because of the value of their parts. Newer, more expensive, and insured vehicles are often stolen to be resold intact with counterfeit vehicle identification numbers or shipped out of the country. Honda and Toyota have held the top spots since 2000. The good news? Overall, vehicle theft has decreased part in tribute to law enforcement and part due to increased technology.
