Opportunist car thefts on rise

The Theft from cars on the increaseRAC is warning motorists about rocketing theft from cars, with a 23% rise in the number of smashed side windows reported last year due to opportunistic thieves grabbing expensive gadgets left in clear view in unattended cars.

Research carried out by RAC Auto Windscreens reveals that despite a car theft taking place every 22 seconds, over 40% of motorists regularly leave valuables on show when their cars are unattended, making rich pickings for thieves who are increasingly smashing side windows to bag booty.

Not only are motorists enticing thieves to their cars by leaving valuables on display, but they also stand to miss out on being able to make an insurance claim if they have not secured their valuable.
