April is Auto Crime Enforcement Month

April is Auto Crime Enforcement month in B.C. and ICBC is supporting the Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team (IMPACT) and the provincial government on highlighting this important issue.

Since 2003, auto crime has been declining in B.C., thanks to increased public awareness through Community Policing and Citizen’s Crime Watch volunteers ‘Lock-Out Auto Crime’ and ‘Stolen Auto Recovery’ programs, police enforcement activities such as the Bait Car program, and legislation that requires new vehicles to be equipped with immobilizers.

Thieves continue to look for any opportunity, so we’re asking you to help us a bit more during auto crime enforcement month to remind drivers to remain vigilant in taking steps to protect themselves from auto crime.
