Car Keys Prized by Thieves
According to security specialists, car keys are becoming a sought-after commodity for thieves. As modern cars are getting smarter, so is the car thief. Today, a thief will target the one thing that can easily bypass your car's security system - the keys. Greg Hill,a senior member of RACV's vehicle engineering team, says: "Misplacing your car keys or carelessly leaving them where someone else can get hold of them can be a costly mistake, in more ways than one."
The modern car key plays an important part of a vehicle's security system. Because it is a so important, it is also very expensive to replace if it is lost, damaged or stolen.
No more quick get aways
The days of hot-wiring are over. Modern cars do not respond to a quick twist of a few wires. The ignition key is a complicated electronic device which holds codes that communicate with the car's computerized system. A signal from the key gives the computer an identification code. the vehicle's security system uses a sequence of codes which vary the response.
Secure your keys
These systems cannot be bypassed quick enough for the car thief so the most efficient method is to steal the keys. In an estimated 70% of cases, the car's own keys are used - often after house or business premises have been burgled.
Keeping your car keys secure will save you money. Take your keys with you on holiday if you leave your car at home. Don't make life easy for thieves by leaving your spare keys in the glove compartment or hidden under the bumper.
If thieves do get their hands on your car keys, security posts will foil their efforts to drive your vehicle away - unless you keep all your keys together!
FBI Claims 80% of Car Crime is Professional Gangs
Robert Eckaus, a vehicle security professional in the US has written that :"The FBI 'says' 80% of car thieves are pros, not joyriders....The bottom line is, if a thief wants a car, they can take it (including newer - expensive models) or tow it away."
