A wave of car thefts in the city
With a rash of car thefts in Brampton, the town’s mayor, Patrick Brown, has appealed to Transport Minister Omar Alghabra to apply section 10.5 of the Motor Vehicle Safety Act.
The idea is to survey the vehicles most susceptible to theft due to a failure in the technology applied to the car.
According to Brown, most stolen vehicles use a keyless ignition and lock system, making the vehicles easily hacked.
Criminals found a way to hack the radio frequency of the keys, taking control of the technology and making the cars start, which facilitated thefts.
Here are some options to try to prevent the theft of your vehicle:
– Put a steering wheel lock;
– disable the key system;
– keep the key away from the vehicle, doors and windows;
– put keys in a closed metal can and keep away from windows and doors.
Since 2019, the number of car thefts has increased significantly. Therefore, Mayor Brown proposes recalling at least 10 of the major defective models to take action to improve anti-theft security.
People who want to join the movement can sign the Stop petition Stop Car Theft Now.
