CAR crime across East Cambridgeshire has been dramatically reduced in the last year.
Figures released from Cambridgeshire Police show that car crime has been cut by 50 per cent across the southern division – from 143 in the two weeks leading up to Christmas 2006 compared to just 71 in the fortnight after Christmas 2007/2008.
Officers believe one of the crime prevention strategies contributing to their success in beating car thieves is a Forget It’ card designed for drivers to put on their dashboards.
The card aims to warn thieves that there are no valuables in the car and it would be a waste of time to break in.
You may also want to watch:
Drivers are urged to make sure they have not left anything on display; that they have removed satellite navigation systems and have locked their cars securely.
To protect your car in the fight against crime simply print out the Forget It’ card and put it on your dashboard.
