Over 700,000 vehicles are stolen in the USA every year. The FBI reports that the theft of automobiles, trucks, and motorcycles in Canada and the USA results in $7 billion in annual losses. The average dollar loss per theft was $7,680. This can be a devastating financial loss for a vehicle owner without theft coverage. It’s also an enormous cost to the insurance carriers, which gets passed along to the rest of us.
And, here the app Stolen Car comes to help all of us to fight against car theft.
The official app for StolenCar.com – The Nation’s Neighborhood Watch for Stolen Vehicles provides access to a geographically relevant ‘hot sheet’ of missing or stolen vehicles, as well as enables you to take a photo of any vehicle license plates that you think might be stolen and submit for confirmation. Information on a missing vehicle that leads to its recovery will result in generous cash and the non-cash prize being awarded to the information provider.
The Stolen Car is carefully designed to empower everyday citizens to make it nearly impossible for car thieves to hide their stolen motorcycles, trucks, and cars.
How It Works
Once you’ve registered, you will receive a hot sheet of stolen vehicles within 50 miles of your current location. In addition to a description of the vehicle, you’ll find a map of the location where it was last seen. If you see it, you contact your local law enforcement agency to report it’s location, and then register it with us to become eligible for a reward, or you can just report it to us by taking a photo of the license plate. We cross check our database and other national databases of stolen vehicles, and if it matches a license plate we are looking for, we contact the police and they recover the car. You then get the reward.
You can also take photos of any license plate and if the vehicle turns out to be stolen you’ll get a reward. Everyone wins except the car thieves. Download the StolenCar.com app from the Google Play store and the Apple Apps Store.
So, let’s start using StolenCar to get help and to help others in recovering stolen vehicles everywhere, and keep alive the fight against this theft.
