Last month The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released information breaking down vehicle thefts in the Unites States. The eye-popping information provided an insight into a problem that costs $6.4 billion of claims every year in the U.S. alone.
To show you how often a vehicle is stolen in the U.S.; if you were to read the paragraph above and this sentence in 33 seconds or longer then chances are a car was stole somewhere in the U.S. during that time.
Check out the graphic provided by The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. You will see, Texas made the list of states with the most stolen vehicles. Of those stolen vehicles, only 57 percent are ever recovered.
Unfortunately, some of the stolen vehicles in the Houston area have been of our very own customers. While some of those customers with stolen cars never end up recovering their vehicle, others whose vehicles were equipped with products like LoJack were able to recover their vehicle thanks to the small Radio Frequency transceiver hidden in one of up to 20 places in their vehicle.
