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.

Understand What an Auto Insurance Premium is

An auto insurance premium what you have to pay to maintain your car insurance policy. This auto insurance premium is based on what type of car you drive, your age, gender, and many other factors. It is important to understand that car insurance companies use a variety of factors to determine your premium amount, and the exact mix of those factors are company secrets.

Which means that getting a lower premium is all in the small details – details the insurance company will not always share with you. So you have to figure out how they think. Since insurance often cost more than general repair and maintenance, you should put some effort into it.

How They Think

Based on the policy options you pick and your history, an insurance company will quote you a base price. Qualifying for one or more discounts will reduce your car insurance premium. Make sure you ask for all possible discounts. Also, ask what you can do to lower the premium. Lower mileage, over-night parking alternatives, anti-theft devices, and auto safety features may not only affect your premiums, they may also have other advantages.

The insurance company will try to figure out how much of a risk you are to them. The more you can convince them that you are a safe driver and a low risk, the better.

When You Get a New Car

Be proactive. When you get a new car, consider how your choice of model will affect the premiums. Some cars are cheaper to insure than others. Look for safety features and good safety ratings. Your insurance company will not like a car that have a history of high damage or injury claims.

Protect your new car. Both newer cars and older cars are prone to theft. The older model years are often stolen for their parts, newer cars for their high value. Do what you can to eliminate theft. If you have a garage at home and/or at work, always park there. Be sure to tell your insurance company. Pick monitored, gated, or supervised parking when you can. Activate anti-theft devices.

Safe Driver

Make a pledge to become a better and safer driver. There are usually several ways to convince your insurance company that you are a safe and responsible driver. Ask for programs you can join. For example, Progressive has the snapshot device and Allstate the Safe Driver Rewards Program. If a completed defensive driver course will lower your premium – take one! They do not cost much and can pay off quickly.

If you can lower your mileage by using other means of transport sometimes, it can also help lower your premiums.

Credit Score

Unfortunately, all insurance companies still think credit history is a powerful predictor of risk. Do what you can to have your credit history and credit score in good shape. Before getting a car insurance quote, you should always make sure that your credit history does not contain any unfavorable errors.

Insurance companies also give “good students” discounts, basically because they think “good student” means lower risk. So, if you are still at school – think ahead.

How Much Should You Pay?

Expect to pay lower insurance premiums if you live in Iowa, South Dakota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, or Idaho. In those states the average car insurance premium is between $630 and $664. You will pay the highest premiums if you live in Delaware, Florida, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, or Louisiana. Average premiums in those states range from $1,110 to $1,277.

The reason for those differences is higher rates of vandalism, theft, and accidents in urban areas compared to small towns or rural areas.

Which means you could also be proactive when you move. A neighborhood with low crime rates will usually mean lower car premiums. But, then again, picking your new home based on expected car insurance premiums is perhaps stretching this too far?

Parking on Hills - Illustration from Highway Code GB

Knowing How to Park on Hills is a Must

Even if a few states fail to mention this in their driver’s manual or handbook, it is important to understand proper parking on hills. You must understand why you park differently if you face uphill or downhill.

Improper is an offense and may result in a ticket. Expect this to be enforced in some cities.

A Pitfall on the DMV test

Consider the following question: You park on headed uphill and there is a curb. How should you turn your front wheels?

On the California test, 49 percent of the test takers pick the correct answer. The correct procedure is described on page 46 in the California Driver Handbook along with a good illustration. This, of course, makes it easier for you to learn.

On the Florida test, only 38 percent get the question right. Correct parking is basically described in the handbook with images only. It is easy to miss this when you study the Florida Handbook.

In Connecticut, more than two out of three miss this question (only 32 percent get it right). The driver’s manual does not mention how to turn the wheels when facing uphill. But you are still required to know this, since it is part of your behind-the-wheel driving test.

Park on Hills – The Rule is Simple

To make it very simple, there is only one thing you have to remember: uphill and a curb!

When you park on hills and face uphill and have a curb, you take advantage of the curb as an extra brake. Turn your steering wheel away from the curb when facing uphill. Let the vehicle roll back a little bit. The back of your front wheel will touch the curb and act as a brake. If you do this, your car will not go anywhere. Set your parking brake. Use “park” if your car has an automatic transmission. Turn off ignition and remove your key.

I all other situations, you turn the front wheels the other way. This means that your front wheels should point toward the curb or side of the road. Facing downhill, the curb will once again act as a brake. When there is no curb, your car will roll off the road – should your parking brake fail!
