  ¬≠Installed auto security systems are a must in today's world. Crime rates contin¬≠ue to climb, especially those involving motor vehicles. According to the FBI, a motor vehicle is stolen every 25 seconds in the United States. What's worse is that startling figure pales in comparison to the number of vehicle break ins and burglaries.

The price of insurance goes up every year due to car jacking and break ins. This effects more than just the victim auto related crime costs millions of dollars to consumers. Insurance discounts for car alarms are offered by most insurance companies. Auto alarms bring the over all cost of insurance down as well by reducing the number of claims nation wide.

Texas has the second highest auto theft rate in the country, the majority of which are in Laredo, ranked sixth in the U.S. Dallas, TX alone had nearly 15,000 vehicles stolen in 2007. The rate of suv and trucks being stolen is climbing this year, but car theft is still higher.
Vehicle tracking systems may be the way to go. Many of these vehicles end up un-recovered and that number has increased in 2008. One of Texas' largest auto insurance companies claims a large portion of them are trucks and sport utility vehicles. Even fewer of these "car jackers" are ever caught, experts say more than 85 percent.
Those lucky enough to never have had their car stolen, have still experienced vehicle burglary of some kind, especially those without auto alarms. Valuables are stolen from cars and suv's, while trucks and vans are being robbed for tools and equipment. That added to the cost of repairing the damage done when a thief breaks into your car makes buying an auto security system a wise investment.

Protect your vehicle and your belongings.

So, what can you do to prevent auto theft. Well the simplest things you can do are to lock your vehicle and park it in an easily observable area. But this is still not enough to deter thieves. Your best bet... technology of course. Auto alarms and security systems are more affordable than ever, and come with many features that can warn off criminals or even stop them in their tracks. Tracking devices are very effective but can be costly, with monthly services charges. Also they are intended to track the car down after it is stolen which kind of defeats the purpose.
