Although vehicle crime on the whole in the UK has fallen over5% since 2010, that doesn't mean that crimes involving vehicles - including theft - have disappeared altogether (with some figures suggesting a rise of 2% in 2012), as these April crime maps from major cities in Yorkshire show:
The figures listed are for April 2012, and show only the vehicle crimes reported in the area highlighted - specifically the city centres:
The numbers circled in pink show the amount of vehicle crimes reported in that particular area, and the statistics are updated each month by the police force in that particular constabulary.
Until you're presented with the actual figures shown on a map in this way, it's easy to forget his type of crime does happen in areas which you do business every day. Fortunately however, there is a solution to these worries.
Vehicle tracking gives fleet managers peace of mind when it comes to vehicle crime, and business owners can be certain that their remote assets will always be recovered and the criminals apprehended should the worst case scenario of a theft occur.Sources: Police.uk, Office of National Statistics
