This video by the National Crime Insurance Bureau demonstrates how vehicle thieves have found some extremely simple ways to get around modern anti-theft vehicle systems. While new alarm and vehicle arrest systems are a powerful way to reduce the risk of a successful vehicle theft, the ease with which thieves can have new keys and/or key fobs can render these sophisticated methods useless.

For those concerned about personal or fleet vehicle theft, a GPS tracking device provides an additional layer of loss prevention capability. Should a thief manage to make off with a vehicle, real-time accounts of the vehicle location ensure a speedy recovery by police.
