New reports from the BBC* suggest that car theft continues to be on the rise in public areas with increasingly sophisticated devices which create no obvious signs of break-ins.
According to the BBC, thieves are using radio transmitters to interrupt signals from remote keys relying on the fact that drivers walk away from their vehicles whilst using their fob to lock them, providing an easy & perfect opportunity to seize a vehicle.
Drivers have been warned to check their car is completely locked before leaving it unattended but they should also consider additional longer term protection against the advanced technologies being used by thieves, particularly for keyless entry vehicles, such as Stoplock devises.
Stoplock has long been associated for protection for older cars but with increasing thefts of modern vehicles, Stoplock continues to deliver solid results as an antitheft deterrent.
The patented Stoplock designs cover a vast range of security devises for all types of vehicle & can be fitted in seconds providing the additional security required. Starting from £29.99, the range is worth considering for the additional protection for all types of car.
Focusing on the increasing thefts in Wales, Inspector Ian Richards from Dyfed-Powys Police is in the process of creating a Skills Training Centre which highlights the benefits of this type of additional protection, particularly in an areas where thefts of motor homes & caravans are on the increase. The Skills Training Centre will be used by the Nationwide Police services, local schools & Driver Awareness courses in addition to training of the police themselves. It’s evident that this tried and tested solution continues to be the choice of professional crime prevention.
Neil Haines, CEO of Saxon Brands Ltd, commented: “it’s a pleasure to be supporting Dyfed-Powys Police with the education of how Stoplock can be used to prevent car crime. The additional time required to remove a Stoplock is enough to deter a thief from getting caught. Designs have been improved within the range over the years and as a result we have seen a phenomenal increase in purchases as car owners are realising that tried and tested solutions are often the best”.
