Every single car can be stolen. The whole trick is to hamper the work of a thief. That is why securities were developed. However, one thing to another is not equal. Which one to choose to sleep peacefully?
In 2014, 14 124 cars were stolen in Poland. That is statistically about 9 percent less than a year earlier, which does not change the fact that every 37 minutes someone says goodbye to their car. Usually forever, because only every fourth car is recovered. And even though the police draws attention to the steady decrease in the number of thefts (in 2004, 51 150 crimes of this type were recorded), then in accordance with the principle “prudent always protected” it is worth to invest in securities. Which ones? The choices are – generally speaking – mechanical and electronic.
– Mechanical securities are out of date. Electronic, but factory ones, are worked out by thieves. It is better to put on the free market solutions, because in their case thieves have the most work, and in case of problems they rather give up the theft than devote more time on it risking being caught –
– explains Paweł Ślubowski from the company hadron.pl.
Police officers from the capital Department to Combat Vehicle Crime note in turn that in the era of reigning electronics, radio-monitoring systems are the most effective. However, the thing is not that they prevent theft, but the thing is they help to recover vehicles that fell prey to thieves.
– Such systems are insensitive to the jammers of GPS/GSM systems used by thieves. In addition, they allow tracking down the cars with an accuracy of up to several centimetres, also in the underground garages or metal containers – explains Dominika Włodarczyk from Gannet Guard Systems. – More than 95% of cars secured in this way that fall prey to thieves are recovered within 24 hours.
