Car Anti-Theft Devices

The guys at the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB) conduct evaluation and studies to determine what are the most common car models usually being stolen in different states in the U.S. They also evaluate the numbers of car theft.

To prevent car theft, NICB created a list of anti-theft car devices. They came up with the “layers” of protection of various devices to ensure your car’s safety from thieves. Car manufacturers made these devices standard in all models or can be installed optionally.

See if you got one of these in your car.
