According to the Alberta Motor Association the number of vehicle thefts in Alberta is “staggering.”
Numbers unveiled by stats Canada on Tuesday showed that Alberta is leading the country in vehicle thefts with twenty three thousand vehicles stolen every year.
In January of this year one quarter of the vehicles stolen had their keys in the ignition.
AMA representatives said “More needs to… and can be done to prevent these crimes.”
Anyone with any stories or ideas on how to prevent these crimes are encouraged to share them on social media using the hashtag #Lockitorloseit.
