Yeah I live in Grand Theft Auto capital of the world. According to statistics, over 20 cars a day are stolen and returned to one of the insurance claim stations, and there is 4 of them. So that means, hmm, 80 cars?

You must live in Surrey. ph34r.gif

Lol, you guessed right. You from around here or somethin'?

Yeah I know...I guess its just that the amount of auto theft leaves me wondering.


And actually there is a way to prevent auto theft - and its not your fuse ideas. Insurance here you gotta pay the first $500 so bucks, and I'd rather not do that, replace the damn windows. Easiest way is to put something "on" the car to make it less easy to steal, like a club. They won't bust in like the fuse idea because they'd rather take another car than the one they have to deal with the fucking club on smile.gif. Worked for everyone on that list, hasn't been touched since.

Besides, if your vehicle gets stolen here, like I said, alot of people almost expect this to happen at least once. Hopefully they don't keep anything important in their car, else then your really fucked. Besides its cooler to work on your car and talk with the guys at the bodyshops around town (Lol, I know a few...) then to have to go out and buy new CD's or buy another discman, which insurance doesn't cover I think.

^ for anyone who said they live in the car theft capital of the world... I don't think so. That title belongs to me. Surrey. BC, Canada (suburb of Vancouver).

Nadalin's comments come hot on the heels of Surrey's placement as the car theft capital of North America per capita. In 2001, more than 6,000 vehicles were stolen in Surrey.


Plus Surrey was just recently given an even better title. Car theft capital of the English Speaking world.

Plus the mall thats 15 minutes from my house has the most car thefts in the parking lot then any other mall in Western Canada.

So I gotta be paranoid every time I leave my car anywhere. I'm thinking of removing my battery every time I leave the car laugh.gif

Put a kill switch under the hood or something. Just turn power to the ignition off. It's not too hard.

Well yah.. I do have a pager alarm and kill switch and a club but those are all detourants still... car thieves are getting smarter and smarter. Hopefully they will just look at my car and move on to someone without all that stuff though...
