Where your car is most likely to be stolen
The National Insurance Crime Bureau has released a report on which communities are most -- and least -- vulnerable to car theft. The safest place? Maui, Hawaii.
- Common sense. Remember to take your keys with you, close your windows, lock your doors and park in a safe, well-lit area.
- Anti-theft devices. Invest in visible and audible alarms, brake and wheel locks and other theft-deterrent devices.
- Ride immobilizers. Prevent "hot-wiring" with smart keys, fuse cut-offs and other onboard technology that prevents thieves from starting your vehicle's engine.
- Tracking devices. Install a GPS or other tracking device that alerts you if your vehicle has been moved, and helps police locate it if it's stolen.
