How can I protect my vehicle?
There are some protective measures drivers can consider to help reduce the risk to their vehicles.
- Parking vehicles close to walls, fences, kerbs and garages with the exhaust closest to these, making gaining access to the underneath of the vehicle more difficult
- Where possible park your car in a locked garage
- Avoid parking your car partially on the pavement and if using a car park consider parking between other parked vehicles
- Consider CCTV, security lights and alarms where possible.
- Consider purchasing catalytic converter covers or clamps which are widely available and offer protection.
