NICB Lists High-Theft Vehicle Areas

Originally Published in MotorHome Magazine

According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau
(NICB), the following areas have the highest rates of vehicle thefts in
descending order. Be particularly wary in these regions: Modesto,
California; Las Vegas, Nevada; Stockton, California; Phoenix, Arizona;
Visalia, California; Seattle, Washington; Sacramento, California; San
Diego, California; Fresno, California; and Yakima, Washington.

Motorhome enthusiasts like to tow dinghy vehicles, and these
are vulnerable to theft just like any other vehicle, especially since
most are flat-towed with the key in the ignition. Therefore, be sure to
have a locking device on the tow bar and preferably a hidden kill switch
for the starter and/or ignition.
