Contrary to popular opinion, auto theft is not typically the work of a teenager out for a joyride or seeking adventure. While theft deterrents can ward off amateur thieves, the professional thief knows how to disengage most of them, including alarms, clubs, smart keys, kill switches, and more.
Today auto theft is a lucrative business opportunity for professional thieves, and an increasing number of organized crime rings see it as easy money. In fact, professional thieves can strip a vehicle in less than 30 minutes, and make two-to-four times a vehicle's worth by selling its parts (based on NICB Statistics).
In addition, auto theft is often just one crime that is committed during a series of other, more serious crimes, such as burglary, kidnapping, identity theft, and even acts of terrorism. So protecting your vehicle from the amateur thief is not enough. You really need to keep it safe from the hands of professional criminals.
Vehicle owners should have a recovery system that can help get their car back if it is ever stolen. The covert, radio-frequency-based LoJack® Stolen Vehicle Recovery System is directly integrated into law enforcement agencies, who use LoJack Police Tracking Computers to track and recover stolen vehicles. LoJack has over 26 years of experience and a 90% recovery rate on cars and trucks.
