According to the Insurance Information Institute, approximately $6 billion was lost to motor vehicle theft in 2018. Criminals often target vehicles that are parked in dark and isolated areas. The most common reasons vehicles are stolen are:
Many commercial properties hire security guards to monitor their property. This solution can be expensive. With limited coverage ability and inadequate training, guards can also be ineffective.
