Auto Theft Information

What if Your Car is Stolen?

Think about this: what would happen if your car suddenly disappeared? Victims of auto theft often find it difficult, if not impossible, to go on with everyday life. That is why auto theft protection is so important.

The Most Stolen Cars in United States

The most stolen cars are NOT expensive sports cars or multi-purpose passenger vehicles. In fact, the most reported stolen cars are ordinary passenger cars.

According to NHTSA, the (2012) most reported stolen models are:

  1. Mercedes Benz CL-Class
  2. Mitsubishi Eclipse
  3. Mazda 6
  4. Chrysler Dodge Charger
  5. Nissan Infiniti FX35/FX50
  6. Chrysler Dodge Avenger
  7. Chrysler 300
  8. GM Chevy Impala
  9. Mitsubishi Galant
  10. GM Chevy Captiva

Did you know that every 45 seconds a car is stolen in the United States? Only half of them (54%) are recovered. Thieves can strip a vehicle in less than 30 minutes. They can make 2-4 times a vehicle’s worth by selling its individual parts.

Didn’t you find your model in the list? See The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 2012 Theft Data for a complete list.

States with the Most Stolen Vehicles

The following are the 10 U.S. States with the most stolen vehicles:

  1. California
  2. Florida
  3. Texas
  4. New York
  5. Georgia
  6. Illinois
  7. New Jersey
  8. North Carolina
  9. Ohio
  10. Nevada

The auto theft rate in these states has a significant effect on auto insurance premiums in those states.

How to Protect Yourself from Auto Theft

There are some simple steps you can follow to beat the thieves at their own game and protect yourself from auto theft.

First, get anti-theft systems and devices that make your car more difficult to steal and easier to recover. Most vehicles today come with audible warning devices. They may deter random auto theft by loud sounds. VIN-etching your vehicles windows/glass and even parts, is a simple and inexpensive protection. Electronic devices that prevent thieves from bypassing your vehicle’s ignition system are also effective. There are other electronic devices that disable the flow of electricity or fuel to the engine. You can also get simple GPS devices that can help law enforcement reveal the location of your stolen car.

Secondly, always park your car in a safe place. If you have a garage, use it. Hide your valuables. Always close all windows and lock the car. Never leave your car with the key in the ignition.

 Crash Scene - NHTSA

Traffic Deaths in 2014 Hit New Record Low

The number of traffic deaths in Pennsylvania totaled 1,195 last year (2014). This is lowest number since 1928, when record keeping began. While fatalities dropped in many types of crashes, there were significant drops in crashes involving unbuckled drivers/passengers and drinking-driver-related crashes. Fatalities where safety belts were not used dropped from 425 to 383. Deaths in drinking-driver related crashes declined to from 342 to 294.

Traffic deaths involving drowsy or sleeping drivers, on the other hand, increased slightly. This is also true about fatalities involving drivers ages 65 and older. At JustDrivePA.com PennDOT offers information for this age group, including Mature Driver Improvement courses that are available statewide, a brochure on talking with mature drivers, and other safety tips.

Zero Deaths Vision and Safety Investments

This continues a favorable trend towards the nationwide goal of zero fatalities.

“PennDOT continuously strives to drive down crash and fatality numbers, and we ultimately want to reach zero deaths on our roads,” acting PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards said when releasing the new numbers.

Every year, PennDOT invests about $20 million in safety education and enforcement efforts statewide. Over the last five years, PennDOT has also invested $50 million in low-cost safety countermeasures like centerline and edge-line rumble strips.

Pennsylvania Crash Statistics

PennDOT has released a Crash Information Tool, which is accessible at dotcrashinfo.pa.gov. With this tool you can search data from police reports including number of crashes, people involved, or vehicles involved. The tool will not show personal data or specific police crash reports.

Are Online DMV Practice Tests Good or Bad?

Derek Thompson, a retired driver instructor from Pennsylvania, does not like our online DMV practice tests. He says that the explosion of online practice tests for DMV exams have created a new generation of young people who master the DMV examination, but have no a clue about rules of the road.

We, of course, got curios and had to find out what he means.

Not Meaningful Learning

If young people pass their DMV tests the first time with the help of online permit practice tests, isn’t that a good thing?

Derek: Just recognizing questions and answers from an online DMV practice test may help you pass your examination, but it will not make you a good driver. It is not meaningful learning.

So what is meaningful learning?

Derek: Memorization is useful when it comes to numbers and vocabulary – like when you are learning a new language. When you are learning about safety and driving, you need to understand the whys and the hows. To me, it is all about knowledge and attitudes. Sorry to say, many teenagers today don’t get the most important message of all: driving is a privilege, not a right. They only focus on their written exam, and lose the big picture.

The DMV Sample Tests are Different

Nearly all state departments dealing with motor vehicles, licensing or public safety have some sort of sample tests, like the ones on PennDot You also have several private websites. Isn’t variety good?

Derek: The sample tests on the DMV homepage just shows you a glimpse of how a test is constructed and what you should expect. They don’t lure you into thinking that you will get all answers for free and without having to study.

We always stress that anyone using our website must read the driver handbook and fully understand the content.

Derek: But do they?

I believe most students do. But there will, of course, always be people who wants to cheat on high-stakes tests. For different reasons. That will happen with or without online DMV practice tests, won’t it?

Derek: Teenagers will not work hard when they have a perfectly good excuse for being lazy. Any parent knows that. To me, tests on internet are that excuse.

How Important are the Written Knowledge Tests?

But studies show that safe driving and security has very little to do with the written knowledge tests. States with more, and perhaps harder, questions don’t get better drivers on the road.

Derek: I disagree, true knowledge and safe driving are strongly correlated. A driver with knowledge, skill, and the right attitude has a much lower risk of being involved in accidents. Otherwise, we wouldn’t invest so much in safe driving classes.

I agree that attitude and conscientiousness play a significant role.

Derek: A knowledge test is supposed to focus on that as well. But if you are just repeating things you have seen on an online practice test, there is no real impact on your attitude and conscientiousness. You have, sort of, missed the point.

The Solution?

So what is the solution?

Derek: 25 questions on a knowledge test and 15 minutes behind the wheel on a road test is not enough to evaluate a person’s knowledge, skills, and attitude. I think sites like this have taken DMV a bit by surprise. They need to adapt and change, making DMV practice tests like this less important. The Graduated Driver program is as step in the right direction. Otherwise DMV tests in US haven’t changed much in several decades. It is time to rethink a lot of things. I hope that will happen soon.
