A common-sense approach when it comes to vehicle security

All new cars have a good level of security and engine immobilisation fitted as standard.  It is becoming increasingly difficult for thieves to “hot wire” a vehicle.  This has led to a rise in theft of keys from house burglaries, hook and cane key theft through letterboxes and car-jacking.
