The Car Crime Map

It can take a thief as little as 10 seconds to break into your car. It is therefore important that you park and leave your car somewhere safe. But where is safe?

Co-op Insurance has released an interactive map to help UK car drivers see where vehicle crime is most frequent. Enter your location into Park Smart and you can view the location of nearby car crimes that have occurred in the last six months. Numbered and scaled markers show the number of car crimes reported at each location. It is therefore possible to quickly identify roads and blocks which experience high or low levels of car crime.

As well as the interactive map Co-op Insurance has released some handy tips for parking your car safely. Such as parking with your wheels facing the kerb to deter car thieves looking for a quick getaway.
