Auto theft is one of the most famous crimes across the globe and most of the time it takes place due to the negligence of the car or vehicle owner. In UAE, the number of auto theft has decreased over the last few years as the citizens are more technology-friendly and take all necessary security precautions such as fleet GPS tracking. Still, the thieves are more advanced, and few are aware of these systems. But there are plenty of car drivers who are not aware of such precautionary methods and end up making common mistakes which makes stealing cars easier. Plus, the techniques these thieves use to hide the identification of the car evades detection.
Here are a few things which a car owner can do to prevent the theft of the vehicle.
