OnStar Stolen Vehicle Assistance
Vehicle Theft Hotspots
It isn’t surprising that our small towns in central Wisconsin don’t even rank in the National Insurance Crime Bureau’s(NICB) report for vehicle theft hotspots. We reside in relatively safe communities where we can feel confident that if we leave our car running to warm up in the winter that it will be there when we come back. We highly recommend the remote starting option that adds not only convenience but added security of locking the vehicle when activated. However, with summer upon us and family adventures on the horizon many will be traveling increasing the risk of vehicle theft.
According to the most recent statistics from NICB’s 2017 report these Wisconsin cities are on the hotspot list:
- #43 Milwaukee-Waukesha-West Allis with 6,516 thefts
- #282 Madison with 758 thefts
- #302 Eau Claire with 160 thefts
- #341 Green Bay with 204 thefts
- #353 Appleton with 127 thefts
- #362 Wausau with 62 thefts
Maybe you will be adventuring to neighboring states to places like Minneapolis, MN who ranked #139 with 8,472 thefts or Chicago that ranked #118 with 24,254 thefts.
