Most respondents indicated that they would be willing feet and hands to avoid that their vehicle is stolen. Despite all, many people adopt risk behaviors and are not adequately equipped to be able to regain their flying vehicle, thinking they are wrong entirely covered by their insurance policy.
A serious concern - According to the most recent data from Statistics Canada, more than 24,000 vehicles were stolen in 2010 in Quebec. It is therefore not surprising that car theft is a major concern for the Quebecois. LoJack Canada, distributor of the Boomerang brand, and now the LoJack brand, recently demand Angus Reid to conduct a survey to know the opinion of the owners of vehicle in Quebec and Ontario regarding the theft of the vehicle. The results of the survey reveal that car theft is not taken lightly by the owners.

"Vehicle owners are concerned about the possibility that their car is stolen, so it is important to install effective and reliable solutions for tracking and recovery of the vehicle.

On the market for over 25 years, tracking systems and recovery LoJack offer the most recent technology to prevent theft and to recover stolen cars or trucks across Quebec, Ontario and the United States. They are so reliable that they can even identify vehicles in areas where GPS signals are blocked, as in steel containers. This is one reason why LoJack is the only system that is used by many police services for vehicle tracking stolen, "says Michael has Lendick, national director of security and police relations LoJack Canada.

An expensive crime
Stress causes the theft of a vehicle is not the only major drawback; such an experience is compelling and can be surprisingly expensive. According to the survey, many Quebecois (78%) indicated that they believe that their insurance company will cover everything related to the theft of the vehicle, compared to 64% of Ontarians. This is not the case, because the victim will pay on average $ 2,500 in miscellaneous expenses, even if it has insurance replacement vehicle. In addition, the Insurance Bureau of Canada estimates that the theft of a vehicle costing Canadians a billion dollars a year because of costs to the insurance and police lies, which leads to an increase in insurance premium for each policyholder.
"Most victims of vehicle theft are not aware of financial true impact for themselves and others. That is why it is important to understand all the details of the insurance policy and contact their insurer as soon as possible in case of theft. Especially, if they equip their vehicle with an efficient and reliable LoJack device theft victims can identify and quickly retrieve their car or truck flies, and so reduce to a minimum the costs associated with flight, explained Michael Lendick. Thanks to vehicle owners who have LoJack installed in their car or truck, our teams CHARGED the tracking and recovery of the vehicles were found in Canada more than 7,200 vehicles, with an approximate value of $ 352 million since 1995. On a global scale, LoJack has recovered more than 300,000 vehicles, worth nearly $ 4 billion since 1986. This is considerable contributions to assist the owners in finding their precious vehicle flies and reduce costs. "
A high risk
Although 90% of survey respondents take concrete measures, such as park their car in a well lit area and make sure to lock the doors to prevent theft, many also have behaviors that promote the theft of vehicle, especially men:
Ontarians (44%) are more likely than Quebecois (30%) to park their vehicle in the left unlocks a behavior most often takes men (42%) than women (33%);
Leave the car with the keys in the ignition and the engine running is an invitation to thieves. Despite all, 24% of Ontarians and 17% of Quebecois have responded have already left their car unattended. The worst culprits are men, 24% admitted to this behavior, compared to 17% of women.
However, many of those surveyed responded that they would install an anti-theft system and a tracking system in their vehicle. Despite the fact that they take risks, men are more likely to take preventive measures against theft by installing an anti-theft system or vehicle tracking system:
Interestingly, the Quebecois (55%) are more likely than Ontarians (32%) to install an anti-theft device, and particularly men (48%) than women (12%).
17% of Quebecois have said he installed a recovery system of the vehicle compared to 10% of Ontarians, and rather men (15%) than women (12%).
Despite everything, when we asked respondents if their current vehicle was equipped with an anti-theft system or vehicle tracking system, about half of the respondents admitted that their vehicle is not endowed with such device, making their vehicles vulnerable to theft.
"Given the potential for theft and risk behaviors of owners of vehicles, the installation of a tracking device is the only way to locate and recover a car or truck stolen. Even if there are other anti-theft devices, the LoJack solution is the only device able to locate the vehicle. Therefore, it is important that owners provide with their car or truck LoJack system, most effective and most reliable in the industry, for maximum protection. Vehicle owners have peace of mind with LoJack because no other solution on the market can beat it! , "Concluded Michael Lendick.
