Vehicle theft: many Quebecers do not use an anti-theft device

Despite the extent of the phenomenon of vehicle theft, motorists do not use any anti-theft protection measures, according to a CAA-Quebec survey which aims to raise awareness of the need to invest in the security of your car.

The survey published Tuesday reveals that the overwhelming majority of respondents (81%) are aware that the increase in stolen vehicles is increasing the price of automobile insurance.

Some 72% of motorists who do not use an anti-theft system say they are ready to install one if it allows them to reduce their insurance premium, at a time when barely a quarter of vehicle owners fear being stolen.

On the other hand, among younger motorists, only 18% of 18-34 year olds plan to equip themselves with an anti-theft device when purchasing or leasing a new vehicle, according to the results of the survey.

Faced with the technological means of thieves, the organization believes that motorists should not only lock the car doors, pleading for other devices such as the port protector (OBD) and the steering wheel lock.

“Although the authorities have a role to play, it is also the responsibility of all drivers to reduce the risk of car theft by adopting good habits and using the means available to discourage thieves,” argued Suzanne Michaud, Vice-President Insurance at CAA-Quebec.
