Name July (the Highest Vehicle Theft Month of the Year) as "National Vehicle Theft Protection Month"
Americans are not taking the necessary precautions to protect their vehicles from theft and are putting themselves at risk for identity theft based on what they leave in their cars, trucks and SUVs, according to a survey released today by LoJack Corporation (NASDAQ: LOJN) and the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB). The two leading authorities on vehicle theft protection kicked off a joint education initiative with this survey and named July (the highest vehicle theft month of the year) as "National Vehicle Theft Protection Month."
"LoJack and NICB have joined forces because we believe that many Americans are leaving themselves exposed to today's professional thieves. Our survey has confirmed the need for consumer education around this issue," said Ronald V. Waters, President and Chief Operating Officer of LoJack. "Not only have we created a month for consumers to focus on this important matter, but also we are making available valuable theft protection information that can help consumers change some of the negative behaviors we uncovered in our survey."
