Motorists have been advised to be extra vigilant this winter, extra hours of darkness during the winter months will give car thieves more opportunities to steal. Figures released by Tracker show that 20% more stolen vehicles are recovered during winter.
Winter's extra hours of darkness allow more time for thieves to break into vehicles unseen, with November, January and February being the worst months.
Motorists who do not carry their belongings with them after leaving their cars have been advised to lock them in the boot of their vehicles. Drivers should also ensure that their vehicles are parked in busy or well-lit and attended parking areas.
