Unique DNA for Vehicles
Car theft worldwide is big business; with a car being stolen
somewhere every 10 seconds thieves are netting £12 billion
per year! Whether it’s a brand new 4X4, a seven year
old saloon stolen for parts, a three year old hot-hatch rung
to replace an insurance write off or a premium limo shipped
out to serve a market where the model is in short supply the
problem affects new and old cars alike.
Immobilisers have virtually stopped joy riders but professional
thieves just hit the weak link ~ the driver.
The results affect us all:
- House Breaking and Burglary for keys has increased.
- Car-jacking has become commonplace with thieves quite
willing to use violence.
What can be
Police, Thatcham (the Insurers Research Centre) and even thieves
will tell you that as long as it's easy to change the identity
of a vehicle it is easy to resell it for a premium price.
In the case of an older vehicle being broken for parts the
situation is even worse as these are virtually impossible
for Police to link back to a stolen vehicle. If cars could
be permanently identified thieves would find their sales routes
drying up. No point in stealing what you can't sell.
So if everyone agrees better identification is the best way
to deter professional thieves why isn’t it done?
Simple ~ it's been too difficult and too expensive up to now.......
Our revolutionary microdot spray system enables thousands
of dots to be applied quickly and easily to all of the car's
major components. Developed to meet Australia's National Motor
Vehicle Theft Reduction Council criteria for theft deterrent
identification systems (we are the only one that meets this!)
our dots are now fitted as original equipment by BMW, Porsche,
HSV, Mitsubishi RalliArt, Ford Mustang and Subaru to all of
their new vehicles sold in Australia.
In the UK Mitsubishi and Peugeot already offer Mighty Dot
as an option on their vehicles with many other manufacturers
planning to offer this option over the coming months.
